My first Copic Colouring Attempt

Well I thought it was about time I attemped to use my Copic Pens, Ive had them for awhile but been to wary of trying them out, anyway I have and I hope that you think Ive made a passable card with them.

The images I have chosen to try this on are two of the Tilda stamps, Edwin and the Swing, of course I first stamped him onto a piece of Letraset Bleedproof Marker Pad with my Memories Inkpad (this is the only one you can use with the Copic Pens), and then onto a piece of spare paper to allow me to cut him out for a mask. This done I placed it over Edwin and stamped in the Swing. Ive then used Rach's Tutorial to help guide me through colouring him, though I probably havent really mastered the nack of really doing it yet, I think Ive got a reasonable result.

The base card is again a 8" x 8" card from a piece of A3 card, and on top of this I have placed a piece of light blue pearlescent card, which I have covered with a piece of patterned paper, I have used one of my Distress Inkpads around the edge to try and make it a bit more aged. On top of this I have created two more mounts from different blue cards, covered with patterned papers and again Ive used the distressed inkpads just to take away the sharp edges on them. Ive then stuck them onto the base card at angles.

Unfortunately I dont have a Nestabilitie die big enough to use to cut out the stamped image so Ive had to cut it out with my Rotatrim, then stuck this onto piece of dark blue card, then with foam I have mounted it onto the base card. For the greeting I have used one of my Just-Rite stamps and punched this out with the circle die, then mounted this onto two sizes of scalloped edged pieces of card, after which Ive used foam to mount this also onto the card.

To finish of the card Ive cut out several flourishes with my EK Success punches to arrange and stick around the card, and the last thing Ive done is stuck a cat button on the left hand bottom side.
