Today I have a sweet little image I couldn’t wait to color as well as some really exciting news! I am SO excited to be posting today. Eeeeeee!
This adorable Lil Primrose Bloom image is by Kaiser Craft. I couldn’t resist her.
The flower is a separate image within the “mini clear” set. I stamped it next to the girl and drew in the flower stem with a Copic Multiliner. After coloring with Copics, I added dots of clear glaze over the flower centers.
I think mostly everyone knows that I’ve been doing some things here and there for Copic. I seriously love my markers and to be asked to submit or assist, anything really, has been such an honor. But to receive an invitation to be an “official” part of their design team… *deep breath* …has been unbelievable. It’s a good thing Marianne asked me in an email because if she had called, she likely would have thought I’d hung up on her…or passed out. I wouldn’t have been able to say a thing. I was stunned. Still am.
After reading the email at LEAST ten times (seriously), I was able to type a three or four sentence response to Marianne saying, “Yes. YES. YES!!” (Those were not the three sentences. *snort*) I’m SO thrilled! And, I am not squealing alone! I have a new squealing buddy, Cindy Lawrence. I’m very much looking forward to getting to know her, and the other ladies better.
This is SUCH a great group of ladies, so sweet, so talented, so helpful, so funny. And I am SO lucky.
In celebration of adding Cindy and I to the team, Copic is giving away TWO of the new Copic All Marker Carry Cases…one here on my blog, one on Cindy’s blog.
Isn’t that generous? Wow! (The markers are NOT included. And due to distribution rights, the give-away is only open to residents of the US and Canada.)
To be eligible, please leave a comment on this post telling me what tutorials you would like to see…a particular background technique? Coloring something specific such as hair and skin? Furr? That type of thing. I will close the commenting on Sunday, March 4th, 9 p.m. and select and announce one random winner here on my blog on Monday, March 5th at 9 a.m. EST.
Be sure to stop by Cindy’s blog for a second chance to win a Copic All Marker Carry Case! She has a different question for you though, so pay attention!
You’ll also want to swing by the rest of the team blogs as they are each giving away rolls of Copic’s new 1/4″ foam tape and regular double-sided tape. Here are the links:
Thank you SO much for stopping by! Good luck, and have a great day!
