Mad For Markers Current Challenge - Last Days.


Gosh, here it is Thursday already, these school holidays and long weekends really play havoc with my sense of time. We just had a five day weekend and now we are heading towards another three day weekend! Hey I'm not complaining, lol!

Being a Thursday it means it is my day to create and share a card with you for the current Mad For Markers challenge. This months challenge has been to use Copics in the YR, RV and BG colour families.

For my card I have used a Kenny K image "Download Diva"

This colour combo for this months challenge has been tricky for me. I have to be honest and say it is a bit out of my comfort zone. I don't actually own any BG's yet so I tried to get a bit creative and use a couple of different colours on her jeans to try to achieve a blue green colour.

The following Copics were used:

Skin - E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair -E29, E27, E25 and E53
Eyes - B93 and Y11
Shirt  and Shoes - RV91,RV93. RV95, RV99, YR61, YR65, YR68, N1 and N3
Jeans - YG91, YG95 and B91

Head on over to the Mad For Markers challenge blog to check out the current challenge and for some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

There are only a couple of days left for the current challenge to run but you still have time to link up your card to share with us.

Sammi also has an exciting new project underway

Here's what Sammi had to say a few days ago

Good morning, I am excited today to be able to reveal more about that project I mentioned earlier in the week ... Copicendium ... is a mini-magazine/ ideas booklet to be produced by M4M - devoted solely to the use of Copic markers... HUGE Thanks to Tracey Feeger for creating the gorgeous card partially shown on the Magazine cover/ advertisement... using Creeper Harlow from The Greeting Farm's Creepin' Kit!
Would you like more ideas on using Copics?

Want to see more Copic'ed creations in print?

Want to know everything there is to know and more?,

well this little mini- mag is another step in that direction, providing a range of Copic projects, tutorials and ideas for your viewing/ flicking pleasure!
Copicendium will be an A5 booklet ... scheduled to be available in late June... We will therefore be accepting Submissions* and Advertising* up until 20th May!

We are looking for creations using Copics .. from beginners to advanced colourers!
This first issue - we are particularly looking for:
