Copic Fairy!

Yes, I succumbed!  I had a play with Sarah's copics during our time away and ended up buying a set! 

This is my first fully coloured with copics card!  Yay - its awfully good fun!  Copics v Promarkers is really down to personal preference - I truely don't believe one is waaaaay ahead of the other - I just feel that the copics suit me at the moment!   

In our goody bags, we had a whole mass of flowers!  Loads and loads - from Mulberry Crafts  - I am not good with flowers (to say the least!), but the girls told me how to attach them and make them stay attached (silicone glue - which we also had in our bags!).  Shell also gave me the fabby tip of twiddling the wires - gotta love those technical terms!  It definitely adds a little something!

So - thats me done for today - am gonna go and link up some challenges I think!

.... and here they are!   4 Crafty Chicks have a challenge called Marker it Up - this is perfect for my first copic colouring!   Little Miss Muffet have an anything goes challenge, and so does Shelly's images!  They also have a cool freebie over there!  oooo and Flutter By Wednesdays have an open challenge as long as you use an angel, fairy or butterfly!

Lovely card Ruthie.

I agree; it's not whether Copics or Promarkers are better but what suits the individual.

I have both but prefer my Copics. However, Letraset have the Flexmarkers now and they are very nice to use too (and there are some really lovely pale shades available). I'm looking forward to the new metallic Promarkers to add to the gold & silver that are already available.

Gorgeous colouring Ruth, I've just bought a set of pro markers today :) I've never been much of a flowers person either until last weekend - love the tip about twiddling the wires, I've just been cutting them off!
