Coloring with Copics

Here are some images I colored with my Copic Markers.I have to show a pear, of course!
The Bella image has gray around the outside of the image. Plus, I used the blender pen to make small dots on her dress (sorry the picture doesn't really show the detail).Another butterfly image.

One more, this one also outlined in gray.

More Retreat

This is a quick pamphlet stitch book we did at Retreat. Allison taught the class. Meg was kind enough to let me use some Basic Grey paper for the cover as well as the matching fibers. I love how it turned out!
This tin was another class at Retreat - taught by Lori S. She provided the paper and embellishments to complete it. Here's a close-up.
The tin is the perfect size to store all my Copic markers! They were a bit hit at Retreat and I spent some serious money at Brenda's store. Thanks to Becky P. and all her helpers for the great Retreat - can't wait for next year!

I spent last weekend at Camp Garner Creek attending the Tennessee Stampers annual retreat. I hadn't attended for 2 years and it was great to see old friends and make new ones. This year, we had a Sister Sister swap. This is the first card I received - love the purple flowers - two of my favorite things!

Card 2: I'm also very fond of pear images, so this was right up my alley!

Card 3: Another purple and green card.
Card 4: This card is colored with Copic markers and has blue "water" drops falling from it - too cool!
My Secret Sister was Janet J and she did a great job. All the cards had something inside them. Here's the stash of presents I also got. I was very spoiled. Thanks, Janet - you rock!
