February Start to Finish

I have another three part coloring and card making series tonight, I had a lot of positive feedback on the last one so I will try to make this a once a month series. This month's card features Boho Anya from TGF, which I altered just a bit.

Part one is the hair and skin coloring.

Part two is her clothing.

and part three is the altering and card making.

Annabel the Mermaid

I've had a request for coloring a mermaid but thought it would have to wait until closer to summer to do since my card making mood usually falls in with the seasons. But when I got this cutie in the mail, I just couldn't resist inking her up, so today is the day for a mermaid video! I'm sure there will be more to come with the warmer weather. ;-)
Card uses Annabel the Mermaid by Crafty Sentiments Designs.
The finished card can be seen here.

part one is the skin

part two is her hair

part three is her tail

More Copic storage

Hi folks!

When we put the call out to anyone wanting to share their Copic storage methods on the last post we received these great photos from one of our fabulous CMC readers, Bridgette Copple. I think it is great to share the different ways we each come up with for organizing our markers. Whether new to collecting them or owning quite a few, you never know how it might inspire a fellow Copic fan. :)
Here's what Bridgette had to say in her own words:

My name is Bridgette Copple and I’m a newbie to Copic markers. I look at your blog all the time for tutorials and I learn so much from you! I loved your post about Copic storage and I wanted to share my Copic storage with you too.
I take my markers everywhere with me, so I needed something that travels well. I found this marker bin at Amuse Studio. It was inexpensive as well, at $21! It’s super convenient to carry my markers, and all of the markers I have now fit in it with little room to spare.

Thanks for sharing with us Bridgette! :)
