What's making me smile ...

I have been collecting Copic markers for several years and finally have quite a collection! I have been frustrated because I could not duplicate the incredible results I have seen while visiting various blogs. I guess I thought if I just bought more markers, I would improve my coloring skills! (My golfer husband thinks like this, too. If he just had the right golf club, his game would improve!)

Well, I sat in front of the computer, played several tutorials over and over and I finally made some cards using Copic markers that make me smile!

This one is a Magnolila stamp called "Tilda in Overalls". The background paper is Basic Grey "Bittersweet".

This one is called Tilda Holding a Fall Bouquet, also by Magnolia.

This one is Shy Kiki.

I bought the stamps online from Little C's, located in Hawaii. The fresh ocean breezes wafted out of the box when I opened it. I am grateful to these sweet girls for motivating me to practice, practice, practice with my Copics!

Hi Judy! LOVE your cards and your COLORING! You've GOT IT, Judy! I love your shading and that's the whole key to those markers. I'd say you don't need to watch any more tutorials, Judy........you could MAKE YOUR OWN! Now go create some more INSPIRATION for old Karen!
Lots of love, Karen xoxo
