First Copic Colouring attempt

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday my Copics arrived so whilst hubby was out last night I set about having a little practice, I coloured a few different images, trying different techniques for shading & colouring. I am really happy with my first attempt although I may just have to purchase some more line image stamps.

And today I made a couple that were OK, into cards. I have tried to keep both cards reasonably simple & would love to know what you think.

The first card uses an A FREE digi stamp from Buguboo, I love how he has turned out, although my photography doesn't show the shading very well. As for the card itself, I could have moved the image over a little & I am not sure what it's missing. I did try to add a button, but it just wasn't right, so I decided on a few little red bling spots & to be truthful I dont like them either but they were stuck down already.

For my second card I used the hippo image from the Pun Fun stamp set, the shading is showing a little better in this photo, just not 100%. Again I kept the card simple by using the Happy Birthday wheel from SU & some satin ribbon & button & a little Crystal effects to the balloon & centre of the bow.

Bye for now
Happy Stamping
