Thank you for the chance to win some Copic markers! I haven't tried them yet, but they're on my wish list!
Your cards are gorgeous!
Lockhart stamp, Cottage Flowers, and paired that with some new October Afternoon paper, Farm Fresh.
The Copic markers that I used are shown below in two rows; click on the images if you need to see something larger. In addition to the markers, I also used clear, mint, and buttermilk Spica Glitter Pens.
Orange Zest ribbon and vintage buttons, as well as sentiment (Mega Mixed Messages) are PaperTrey Ink. I used two Spellbinders dies, a Classic Oval Nestability and a double-ended tag, trimmed on one end, and I used a gold metallic paint pen to edge the focal image with.
Now how about that Copic news that you've been scanning through this post for? Copic has added some new regional certification instructors, and to welcome them, is giving away a fabulous prize on each of the blogs listed below! What is that prize? It is the winner's choice of either an ABS-1 OR any twelve Copic Sketch colors!
To enter, please leave us (any or all of the people listed below) a comment letting us know either how you use Copics, which Copic products you use, why you love them OR why you wish you had Copics.
In addition to one winner from each listed blog, Copic will be reading through comments. If they find a testimonial that they really like, then they will contact that person to use his or her story for the CHA booth and would then give the person an equal prize to the random winners. In other words, make your comments good! There will probably be two or three winners chosen total on comments, as well as the one winner for each listed blog. These will not be announced right away.

It's really exciting to see how these markers have migrated from the graphic design and fine arts fields to be embraced by paper crafters and altered artists as well. The addition of more certification instructors should make it simpler for you to receive instruction in your area and perhaps even sit in classes at a local stamp store. As Martha would say, "It's a good thing!"
Now, for a little bit more about my trip, for those who want to know. Have you ever seen so many markers on one table? These are being packed into 72 piece stampers sets.
Here several of us are in Marianne's office, which is tidy, by the way. Maybe she should come help me clean mine!
He are some of those nice people in the warehouse who get Copic Markers and Various Inks out to the stores--we love them!
How about an aisle of Various Inks? Think of the number of times you could refill markers with all of these. . .
I wish that I had had better lighting for this picture; Ken, the president of Imagination International and an art professor, was giving us a lesson in sketching and airbrushing. He was pretty amazing to watch!
Finally, for you cat lovers out there, this is the warehouse cat. He startled me, but I think I returned the favor when my flash went off. He looked much more pleasant before I snapped his picture!
Thank you for visiting, and I wish you luck in winning some of these fabulous Copic prizes!
