Hello Copic Lovers,
Well, this is exciting, because it is my first post back with the Mad for Markers team since I had my baby Nicholas and I guess you could say I have been on Maternity leave!
It has taken me five months to get back on track with my colouring and card-making since Nicholas was born. The Challenge this month at Mad for Markers is to create a Spring inspired project using G and YG markers. I have used a Some Odd Girl stamp called "Smell the flowers Tia"you can buy this stamp in Sammi's store here for $9. I have created a journal page using water colour paints for the background. I coloured the image with Copics using these colours:
Grass: YG03, G94, G99, G14, YG23
Skin: E11, E00, R20
Hair: R59, E37, YR23, Y21
Purples: V09, V06, V04
After making this journal page, I realised I have not used really that many YGs and Gs so I thought I should make another card that is purely green. So I made this one for my neighbour whose birthday it is this week. He loves skating and skate boards. This stamp is also available in Sammi's store here.
For this card I used
G21, G17, G28, G14, G05, G85
YG03, YG11, YG41, YG06, YG03
and B93 for the outline.
Link up your G and YG colour creations to our challenge here.

A big hello to all the lucky people at the Mad for Markers Conference today in Sydney.
