Colour Me...Addicted!!!

For the longest time I have resisted the temptation to stamp and colour......I think I should have kept resisting...hehehe.....
I recently purchased my very first selection of Copic markers from Lime Tart.  They have a great Copic Club running and along with my first set of markers, I also received a little binder with helpful info.  For me this has been a great way into colouring as I seriously have no idea.
So armed with my markers and stamps, I thought I'd have a little play.....
The image on the left is coloured with my new Copics and the image on the right is with my water colours.
Now don't look too closely at my colouring and the dodgy smudging on some of the edges.  I think it's okay for a first effort.  I prefer the brightness of the water colours, but as I'm just starting, my Copic collection is quite limited.  I love the way the copic colours blend though!  Oh dear....I don't think I'll tell Stef about this
Will be back later with some card creations using my new stampy images.
Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. Both are really great and I have to say, your first time colouring with copics is amazing and so much better than my first effort - I was NOT willing to share mine, it was that bad!! You will get used to what copics can do. I am seriously hooked and I know you will be too. Can't wait to see your cards - hurry up and post!!!! LOL!

  2. Nik, first your first effort it's very good. Copics are fantastic, versatile and easy to use! And same as Tanya said, your first effort is way better than mine as well. Once you have been shown how to use Copics, you'll never look back.

  3. OOOhhhhhh they are both amazing Nik!! Great minds think alike, because I am ordering my first lot of copics this week ( all Tanya's gorgeous cards inspired me).

    I absolutely adore your layout in the previous post too.......gorgeous!!

    Take care sweetness xox

  4. Hey there sweetie! Those are both beautiful, congrats on your new addiction hee hee!

  5. I keep hearing about these Copics! I think I'll have to get some, just to see what all the fuss is about, lol. I really like how nice and bright your water coloured image is though, and such a cute lil stamp!
    ....I left something for you over on my blog, if you want to go have a look sometime :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message.
