Smokin' Deal

Welcome to Friday, my friends!

I did a little Unity shopping over the holidays, and I ordered this Tiny Trinity set:
I actually thought I was getting an itty bitty, which as you all know comes in a baggie roughly 3x4" (I'm guessing here). This set actually came in their normal packaging and is not tiny nor itty bitty. I had to check my packing list to make sure they had sent the right thing!


I've been on a colored pencil kick lately. Every time I try to color with Copics, the details get blurry and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I like my colored pencils MUCH better, although the red doesn't compare to a marker. The sentiment is from the Something Within set, the border is a Martha Stewart punch, and the twine and cardstock is PTI. The background paper is Basic Grey.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh this is sooo cute! I did get this one too, but it's still sitting packaged up..it was a GREAT deal! I have been thinking about using my pencil crayons lately too...because I have no copics and I don't really want to spend the $$ when I have such limited time to craft.

That is a nice card....the set you received is kinda like getting three bitty's in one, yes? I love that tree set.

Regarding the COPICS, what type of paper are you using? There are some great cardstocks that are meant for alcohol based ink markers. Also COPICS naturally want to blend That is one of the strengths so that you don't see harsh line transitions between colors.

Anyway, I have found that thicker papers specifically for magna art work well. I have Strathmore 500 Series Marker Pads and like it for copic.

Let's see what else....my very favorite was RS coated Judikins papers, but they are hard to find these days.

Don't give up...I guess that is what I'm trying to say!
