Let the magic begin...

Welcome to my first blog post. My name is Carol and I started stamping when my little boy started school in 2000. He is now sitting for his HSC exams, which mark the end of 13 years of school for him.

For quite a while I have been admiring some of my talented friends work with cards and Copic markers. This year I decided to try out Copics. I heard that copics were addictive, and I now know I am hooked. Colouring an image and seeing it come to life is quite therapeutic. It has taken some time but as I have some holidays while my son does his HSC exams, I have finally got around to making some cards.

So here is my first card. I love this image from Magnolia stamps, Wizard Tilda. My daughter is into Harry Potter at the moment, which I find amusing since when my son and I used to read the books and watch the movies, she hated them.

My little wizard is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E59, E57, E55, E53, E51 clothes: C7, C5, C3, C2, C0,Y26, Y23, Y21

And here is a closeup of my little wizard:

I designed the card layout around the word MAGIC and cut out the outline around the letters using my CraftRobo cutter. I was very impressed that this works with the new Silouhette Studio software, which is a big improvement on the RoboMaster software that came with my cutter. 


Stamps: Magnolia wizard Tilda
Paper: Paper Adventures John Christopher limited edition Christmas Stars
Cardstock: SU Buckaroo Blue (retired) and  Bazill Daffodil
Accessories: Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals, Queen&Co Twinkle Blooms Lemon Drop Blossoms

Thanks for taking time to stop by, I hope you enjoyed my card.
Until next time, cheers, Carol
