Hi There!

Well I’ve been having a play with my new Copics and they’re great, this is my first Copic card! Woot! The colours are so vivid compared to markers I have tried in the past and you barely have to touch the page to colour in images. It’s going to take some practice to get used to them but I can tell already that they blend so well, they really do seem as good as everyone says, its just my skill that needs some work now lol and thats all part of crafting isn’t it? Learning new skills and techniques is one of the best bits of our hobby I reckon.

I have a tattoo inspired heart and scroll digi stamp for you today, one with a sentiment and one plain so you can hand write or stamp your own message on it. I hope you like them.

I went for a less traditional take on a valentines card with some strong colours and used the faux tile technique on my image: I coloured my image to match my patterned paper then cut into squares and covered with a layer of crystal effects type laquer then stuck onto some black card when dry.
