New Copic Sketch Markers
A few years ago I took a card making class at my local scrapbook store and discovered water color brush pens. I used them with great success for a while, but I kept coming across fantastic cards that were colored with Copics. So I saved up my pennies and pranced into the art supply store ready to make a major Copic purchase. Boy, was I in for a surprise! The Copics were waaaaay out of my price range! I opted for the Prismacolors instead. These seemed to work out fairly well, but I was still coming across images online that looked so much more vibrant and layered than the work I was creating; each one done with Copics. So finally, a few months ago, I decided to search YouTube and find out if anyone was demonstrating Copics, so I could find out what was so great about them; the secret that was obviously alluding me. I found tons of tutorials and I watched them over and over; fascinated by the techniques and results. But the price still just wasn't right.
I scoured the internet searching for the best price on Copic Sketch markers and I discovered www.carpediemstore.com. They had a GREAT sale on Copics and I bought a good batch to get started. I've been playing around with them all week and I wanted to share my results with you. I'm just getting started so I know my work needs improvement, but I'm on my way and I am officially HOOKED ON COPICS!!!
