copic obsession

My copic obsession is new. And fabulous. For those who have not yet discovered copics, they are a marker. But they are so much more. They are refillable, blendable, more like paint brushes already loaded with the perfect amount of color than a maker. There is even an airbrush system that works with the markers. Can you say Christmas present? I can!

I picked up my first few copics on sale at Hobby Lobby before I discovered they are marking them up WAY too much. I found an online store that delivers quickly and charges less everywhere else. I am in love. I have spent countless hours on youtube watching videos and wander through blogs.

Today was my day off. No work, no committees, no meetings, no playdates--just a me day. I slept in. I colored. I bubbled. I ate cookie dough. ahhhhh.

My blog hopping led me to Too Cute For Words a challenge blog featuring Instyle Stamps. I headed over and picked up my first couple of anime digital stamps. Excellent customer service! I created this for their color challenge--use brown, coral, and kiwi.

Paper, Stickers is BasicGrey, Journal Spot: Jillibean Soup, Bling: Kaisercraft. I used my copics on just about everything. I love how darling the journal spot is after it is colored!

Here are the copics used:

I can not wait to get back to my desk to color more!
