Piles of Smiles Crow Copic Colored Card

Good morning crafty friends,
Today I am sharing a card I created for the Digi Desserts Fridaze Post at MyPaperCrafting.com (formerly cooking with cricut). my nephew has an upcoming birthday so I thought this digi would be perfect!

Here is the picture of the completed card. I used some patterned paper from a stack I purchased at Michael’s. It is the Recollections bright and basic stack. I must admit, I am not too fond of this paper. It perforates at the top and leaves an unfinished, not so clean edge. So if you plan to use the full sheet, your layout will have a funky edge. So I have relegated the stack to “smaller uses”. But the price was right, and it’s been sitting around for well over a year so I figured I better make good use of it…lol!


This is a close up of the digi. I am still trying to get a feel of my coloring. I use the Georgia Pacific cardstock you can pick up at Walmart.  I realize that I need to make some money so that I can get some of the good Gina K. paper. I have heard from more than a few copic “officiandos” out there, that this is the primo paper for coloring.

Here is a pic of the markers I used. I know that was a lot of markers, but I just can’t seem to get my blending down without feeling like I have to keep throwing in colors…lol!
