I decided to purchase some classes for copics, in an online class set up.  Copic Craze, and colouring by Debbie Hodge at Get it Scrapped.   The first part of the course is Copic Craze which is an introduction to copics, and the numbering etc.. ive had copics for nearly two years now and I never understood those numbers..  Well not being one to stand idly by with new information at hand I wanted to get started with colouring.   I coloured up this rose this morning and popped it on a card for my neice who is graduating year 12 today, aswell as celebrating her 18th Birthday this week.
I used the embossing folder and stamp from Stampin up and the sentiment is also a Stampin up stamp.
I was quite excited to learn that you can use distress inks as the stamping medium and not have your copics run... this is brilliant news for me, as look how nice the rose looks when not stamped in black or my new momento brown (yet to be opened).   I even used a whisper pen with distress to colour the edges of my cut image, as i didnt want any white showing from the sides...

Playing along in a few challenges here
