Okay, I FINALLY got my Copics (still waiting for the blender and some other individual Copics...not a happy online shopper right now!!). Anyways, I was able to play a bit with them last week. I colored a couple of images and took a few minutes today to actually put them on cards.
Here are a few things I have learned:
  • Copics are hard
  • Copics take LOTS of practice
  • I am much more comfortable with Prismas/Gamsol at this point
  • Copics don't streak but properly blending to get dimension takes patience
  • I will buy more Copics, but won't abandon my other coloring mediums
  • I definitely need to buy a Memento black inkpad!
  • I really like Copics! lol
Here are a couple of cards I made with the images I colored. No laughing allowed!!!

This one is for my nephew. His party is this weekend and I used his school colors.

This one uses the very first image I colored. This was a stamp that Wendy bought and I just love it. I had to stamp a BUNCH of them. lol It is a really quick and simple card, but I thought it was cute.

It's back to work for me tomorrow. I hope to get a few more cards made today and if I do, I will share them. Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

I agree with above - I struggled at first but love them now. Well actually mine are Promarkers but when I win the lottery (I have great hopes for this weekend) I'm going to buy Copics. Your colouring is great anyway Robin.
Yes a Memento inkpad is best - just got mine and the ink doesn't bleed at all. Good card is a must too.
