Using my COPICS!

I fell in love with Nichole Heady's background made with COPICS in the post "here"
Fortunately, she made a video for this week's MIM Challenge #58 & I've had a ball using my COPICS to do these backgrounds!  Even if I can't color very well with them, now I can make good use of them--LOL!  For my entry I used one of my newer PTI stamp sets, Harvest Berries, and the greeting is from Lovely Leaves.  The markers I used are Y21, YR04, RV29, R59, E35--made me think of a sunrise.  I used one of my old favorite stamp pads for the leaves--Encore! Ultimate Metallic Champagne.  The focal piece is matted with shimmer yellow & black cardstock & then attached to a kraft card.  Decided too much embellishment would detract, so forced myself to just use 3 tiny yellow pearls.  I'm going to join in the PTI Blog Hop tomorrow (my first since becoming a blogger) with another graduated background card.

Hard to believe that we had 5 inches of snow 48 hours ago.  Today was all sun which Blitz & Keesha enjoyed to the fullest!  Hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
