Copic Markers

A friend of mine decided to take the plunge and introduce Copic Markers at her store,
Destination Marysville.
After getting certified as an instructor I actually hadn't done much with them until she asked me to do a class. Needless to say, I've been practicing and trying to narrow done some methods and rules of thumb, that are simple and practical so that those attending can get the most out of what amounts to a fairly large commitment of moola!

This actually isn't a great picture is it? I'm afraid if I go back and keep trying, I won't end up I'm leaving the photo perfectionism behind.

One of the interesting problems for a card marker is giving up the hope that you can stamp on something other than the great white paper blob. No stamping on fascinating patterns or cardstocks - because you really can only use the markers on a quality white cardstock! Now we have to finish and frame out the card in such a way that the great white blob doesn't take over the picture.

Also, if you want to have success with a class, you have to make sure they don't need to buy twenty markers, 3 sets of stamps and learn 10 techniques or shell shock will take over.

We'll see what happens at the class!!
