SSS13- Something Special

I've been a bit MIA but I have been creating! This card is done using this week's SNSS The Sweet Stop sketch and can you tell what I colored that adorable bear scene with?! COPIC markers!! Oh yes, I have found a new obsession! *LOL* Wondering why it's a Christmas card as well? Pop on over the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store to find out about the Christmas in July promo going on and how you can get this (which is one of 3) exclusive digi stamps.

So I've jumped on the Copic bandwagon with both feet and must say I love, love, love them! I've been coloring with the Prismacolor pencils for a long time now and got comfortable with them but was always a bit frusturated. The Copics are a whole different story! The color vibrancy and "clean" look you get is just fantastic. I'm afraid my pencils will never see the light of day again!

The card is pretty simple, just added some piercing and Stickles and lots of layering. I love this image! And now I've got a tiny head start on my Christmas cards *lol* I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thanks for coming by and saying hi:)

You are doing well with your copics, I'm avoiding mine. They sit in a plastic bag and accuse me of liking my reinkers and WWC better and they're right! I do! But you are just rocking those copics.

This is so sweet, Leah! I really like the flower tree topper, and the sparkles on the bear's hat. Congrats on making the move to Copics -- they sure are fun, aren't they?

oh Leah, it is BEATIFUL! You did a fantastic job coloring this with your copics!!! To answer your question, I use PTI paper. Another good brand to use is Gina K Designs.
