First Copic Challenge!!!

My Copics arrived yesterday, and today I've been trying to get acquainted with them. I'm not sure if I chose the right sets to achieve the effects I want, but with a process of trial and error, lots of looks at Youtube and tutorials from any source I can find, hopefully I'll improve!
This challenge from Copic Creations requires the use of BLACK!!
How hard is that for a beginner!!
Anyway I tried!
The image is from the Sketching Stamper, Chris Dark (there's a link on my sidebar), who does the most amazing digi images. Her colouring also is to die for!
I used a Leonie Em punch for the leaves, Cuttlebug for the open flower, an X Cut punch for the white part (embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and twinkled with Glamour Dust) and a little splat for the centre with a little Stickles added.
The pink paper is embossed with Cuttlebug random dots.
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps mounted on Nesties.
And that I think is it!


  1. Just beautiful. Such an elegant design.

  2. Fabulous Chrissie and great job with the copics, black and red are so hard to blend. Give yourself a pat on the back.

    Love this card - so elegant

  9. oh my goodness Chrissie you have done an amazing job with the colouring - that shoe is just fabulous. The shading on it is just wow. Well done you.
    Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog this morning - it brightened my day, especially seeing as when I opened my blog I thought the scheduled card didn't look a bit like it is in real life and wished I hadn't put it on!!
    Have a lovely week.
