1st Copics card!

I got two sets of copics for my birthday- how lucky am I!! I also got the stamp I used on this card and a Stampavie Lelo Design one.
Here is my very first attempt at using my copics. Its not as hard as I thought it would be, however I have just ordered a Brilliance ink pad as the Versafine one has bled slightly. I loved using them and read several tutorials on it before I started, trouble is I want more already!
I defiantly wont give up using watercolouring techniques as sometime a subtle look is better but I think at the moment copics is my first love!!
The sketch is from this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge, its been ages sine I entered a blog challenge, I used papers and letters from Doodlebug, prima flowers and Papermania brads.
A big thank you to Laura and Amanda for the fab cards and the stamped images you sent me, they were lovely!

Aw it's gorgeous - I love that stamp!! Good luck with your new toys too. I have just started using promarkers and am finding it a bit of a trial and error process. I am a water-colourer too!!
