Mad For Markers Current Challenge - Spica Pens

Hi there Copic fans!!

Oh boy , I'm running really late this week! 

I have created a card to share with you to inspire you to join in with the new challenge over at

We want to see you use those fabulously shimmery Spica Pens on your cards.

For my card today I have used a Kenny K image.

Now while these pens are just awesome at giving your creations that added sparkle they are tricky to photograph.

I have zoomed in a bit to try to show you in more detail

The following Copics and Spica Pens were used to colour this image

Skin - E000, E00, E21 and R20
Hair - Y21, Y23, Y26 and Y28
Lips and Top - R24, R27 and R29
Pants and Guitar - C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
Spica Pens - Clear and Red

I'm linking my card to the following challenges

Ladybug Crafts Ink - favourite stamp
Ok, now you have seen how fabulously sparkly these pens are let's see what you can do with them.

Head on over to the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team and been sharing and then link yours up to be in with a chance of winning Three Spica Pens.

For all your Copic and related supplies head on over to Mad For Markers online store.

Mad For Markers post to Australia and New Zealand and stock a large range of Copic Markers, Blending Card, Masking Paper etc.
