CardPatterns Sketch 125: My First Copic Card!

Yet another lovely and inspiring sketch from CardPatterns!

Here's my take on the sketch ... and this is a very special card for me because it's my first ever attempt at Copic markers! Yay! I've always wanted to try them out ever since seeing cardmakers using them on those cute stamped cartoons on their cards, but I couldn't find Copics in any local scrapbook store. Fortunately for me, a fellow cardmaker, Kim so kindly led me in the right direction to Art Friend, Gardens Mall (bless her!) I totally went crazy at the store! *guilty*


My first Copic painted card! The stamp is Micia, also bought at Art Friend. Papers are from Cosmo Cricket's amazingly lovely Odds & Ends - 'Remnant'. I'm so in love with this range now; all that retro-vintage romance. Cream trim and lace from Daiso, cheap and good stuff! And I topped it all with a satin red ribbon.


  The inspiring sketch:
Sketch 125: such a simple yet versatile sketch with so many possibilities.


Closeup of my painted little girl, still yet to master the Copic shading techniques.


A closeup showing the lace, ribbons and my handwritten birthday sentiment.

I really enjoy decorating the inside of a card too!
As you may have noticed, I'm rushing one post after another because of all the month-end challenges deadlines! Hahahah! It's madness!

Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely colorful day!

What a cute card Marina! Love all the layering! Ah, you cleaned up the copic markers from Art Friend did you? Haha. I just got some new ones through a friend in Singapore who came up over the weekend! And congratulations to making the DT at Scrappingville! Your layouts are absolutely gorgeous!
