Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #51

I was so EXCITED to receive my first copic order on Friday (only she delivered it hours before I discovered it). I'm hoping my 2nd order of them will be arriving this week (hopefully Wed).

I broke out a favorite simple stamp of mine by Stampotique- Marsye Carrier called Pretty Flowers. Figured this would make a great stamp to try out the copics on. I didn't have a wide range of colors yet and I forgot to photo which ones I used, but I like my first attempt. Of course I will need to play a LOT more to get some good coloring/shading skills with them, but I'm happy I took the plunge and bought a few.

Make sure to check out Mary Jo's post and join us in the challenge this week. Would love to see your take on the sketch!

Stamp Set: Stampotique- Marsye Carrier called Pretty Flowers

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I never know if it's just my family looking at it, or if there are other crafty people out there checking it out. Knowing other people are looking at it gets me motivated to keep it updated and fresh. I also enjoy having a look at your creations. You have a very beautiful style of cardcrafting.
Have a great day, Tisha
