Buford Feeling Poorly

I have seen the light.
I am going to try my hand at using COPICS.
Scary, huh?
I have been studying hard the last few days
(and driving everyone around me crazy)
and I now have the right paper and ink all ready,
just waiting for my Ciaos to be delivered.

Here's a card for this week's
Friday Sketchers
that I have coloured with some Promarkers.
These have been sitting in a drawer since the day
I bought them. Every time I tried to use them
the ink from the stamp would bleed terribly.
Thanks to all those in blogland who leave tips and tuts
for us, I took their advice and
got myself some Memento ink
and NO MORE bleeding!

Of course you will have to bear with me whilst I learn
the tricky art of blending and shading
with my new pens,
and if anyone has any tips for me
I would be glad of the help.

You'll love copics, they are addicting and I can't color with anything else now! :) It took me awhile to get the hang of it, but there are so many amazing tutorials out there, everyone has their own style. Your card is adorable, love the sweet image. xx
