Kit & Clowder March marker class

Hi all!

So a year ago when I first bought my Copics, I subscribed to Kit & Clowder online classes.
I decided to take both marker and pencil classes.
My copics were bought based on whatever I needed for that month's class.
I really learned how to use my copics through those lessons!

Along the way I got sidetracked wanting to do my own thing for a bit, but I plan to still do all the classes I have.
You get lifelong access so that's great!
Anyway, this month's classes really spoke to me and I HAD to do them! 
Only did the markers one yet, but pencils will follow soon!

I absolutely LOVED to create it and will definitely use these techniques again some day!
Of you want to give it a try, go to,
sign up and mention my name.
You will get a $5 discount if you mention my name (and I will too 😘)

Hope you'all like this one!
Until next time, have a colorful day!

Tiddly Inks Monster party

Hi all!

Two in row!
Today I want to show you a card I did with leftovers and the super cute Tiddly Inks image Monstrous Party
I LOVE cute monsters!!

The background was, in Bob Ross' words, a happy little accident.
I had some trouble creating a background for another card and this was what was left of that..thought it looked nice together.
Bit of a 90's feel to it. I instantly knew I had to use these cute monsters that have been waiting in my collection for a project for a long time.

Aren't they just too cute?!
I used the following copic colors:

Pinks: R89, RV29, RV25, RV23, RV02
Blues: BG78, BG18, BG23, BG11, BG000
Yellows: YR27, Y38, Y17, Y15, Y11
I used a white gel pen for some highlights.

Hope you like this as much as I do!
Until next time, have a colorful day!

My Favorite Things Color Challenge


Today I decided to try a challenge and choose the MFT color challenge.

I adore their stamps!
For this card I used the set Magical Dragons.
A challenge is a fun way to do things you wouldn't normally do.

I used the following copic colors:

Large dragon - BG78, BG49, BG13, G07, YG25, YG11, BV29, BV13, BV31

Small dragon and fire cloud - G07, YG25, YG11, BG78, BG49, BG13, E08, YR68, YR16, YR00, Y18

Paper is Stampin' Up! and accents are Nuvo drops.

Hope you like this.
Have a colorful day!
