Sharing a Sale-a-Bration stamp set today called Merci. This is a wonderful sketch style stamp set that allows opportunity to color! I have seen many samples with this set using watercoloring and they are all gorgeous.

I just bought a few copic markers - my very first ones - and I have been dying to use them. I colored in this image and must say I am pretty happy with the result. It's going to take a while before I get really good with the markers, but the color is so even and nice even with an inexperienced hand like mine. If anyone knows of a chart that shows the coordination between copics and SU, please send me a link. It will save me time and stress trying to stand in Hobby Lobby and figure it out!

There is a green ice rhinestone brad in the center of the flower - but it doesn't show up so well in the photo. The ribbon is misc. from Wal-mart I think. Everything else is Stampin' Up.

happy stampin'
