Last day of Crafting......

Hi Guys..today I have been playing as tomorrow I go to back to work.(Yippee in a boo hiss kinda way..lol..) and I have been messing about with Copics...now it was only last week that I was singing the praises of Prismas and Polychromos to one of my Teamies at ABC...and as much as I love blending and making the shading as good as it can be..it is time consuming...so last night I sat and coloured a few Tildas to see if I could get the look I like...I then found out I didnt have enough colours..especially for the hair so I trudged off to my fav craft shop, The Craft Barn...(such a chore..!!! lol) and bought some more..yes I know!!! but its a Valentines pressie to me..from myself..(its the only Valentines pressie that I got...but thats another story!!!! lol...)so after much restraint as I'm a all or nothing girl..lol..I came way with 12 more colours...and so I've played some more this afternoon and here she is:

Its ok...perhaps I should go to a copics class??? What do you experts out there think?....
PS..how am I suppose to store them..did I read somewhere they should be horizontal (like DB was on Sunday after I didnt get a Valentines treat!!! lol)...xx


  1. The card is gorgeous....and the colouring looks great to me.
    I store mine horizontally...but don't actually know if that's correct or not!!
    Am with you on The Craft Barn...love it...even though it's a bit of a trek....and did you really only come away with copics??? Gold star if you did!!

  2. Fab card Jan and congrats on the job

    Hugs Jane x

  3. Hi Jan

  4. Hey sweetie, good luck for tomorrow! I don't think you need to go on to a class for copics, your colouring is beautiful, such a gogeous card!

    Have a great day tomorrow, let us know how you get on!

    P.S. I think I have heard the same - store horizontally!!

  5. Hi Jan - this card is sweet! Love this Tilda! I've used her a couple of times. Love the colours!!

    I store my Copics vertically, but I store them brush end pointed down as I never use the chisel nib. I store them in the storage boxes you can buy, although one of them I got free with the 72 I bought when I started crafting again in March last year!

    Good Luck for the job!

  6. This card is gorgeous Jan, you certainly do not need to go to any classes. You did a brilliant job. I store mine horizontally, but I read either way is fine. They are very addictive, arent they. xo Jackie

  7. Oh hun, she's is gorgeous! No way do you need to go to classes. I store mine horizontally too, but only because they are flung in a box! Hugs, Squirrel xx

  8. So gorgeous, you know you rock!

  9. Gorgeous card Jan :-) Oh that is terrible ,, HAVING to go to a craft shop ,,, oohh !!! pmsl ,,

    i am doing an online copics course at the mo ,,, and it is fab,, with the My Creative Corner site :-) You can sore them whichever way you like ,,, makes no difference whatsoever :-) Mine are either strewn horizontally across me desk ,,,, or stood up in the container they came in ,,, :-)

    Lols x x x

  10. Your colouring with the copics looks great to me - I'm no expert and can't do all the shading stuff but I just love how easy they are to use and that you can colour digi images without the bleeding. Mine are stored vertically in their storage boxes but I don't think it really matters. Fab card - love the pink dotty papers.

    Love Lynda xxx

  11. fabulous!!!! I love your copic colouring!!! I am lucky to have a set of 72...would like the other set but I think hubby would have a heart attack if I spent another £120 on pens!! Our local craft shop has just this week sarted selling them indivivually! so I think a few will be falling into my hand each time I go!!! anyway enough of me...your card is just fab! Hugs Juls
