Copics and Kraftin Kimmie

These are some of the cards that I have colored with copics using the Kraftin Kimmie stamps...I told a little birdie I would show examples so that she may see what all can be done, I would also like to throw out into blogger world that if you take copic yourself a favor and be sure that your instructor is certified, You can find this out by going to the copic website and looking on the map that is nearest you..if their name doesn't show..they aren't certified and you run risk of being misinformed. That is never good for anyone and copics are a investment you don't want to be mislead on. I have also found that the Strathmore Bristol "smooth" paper works great with copics. Bristol papers come in ply's instead of weights like watercolor paper, which I don't recommend. But keep it simple! You can find this at Micheal's and with a coupon it's just happy money. Also remember when using copics more is better to blend, always start with lightest as base, then if you miss something it can be easily blended. If you end up with unwanted lines...blend all out with base light and let dry thoroughly before reapplying. Hope these few tips help and feel free to contact me if you have questions.
