I have done a ton of "playing" with my new toy....my copic markers. I love it when the colors of a project all match in tone and intensity. This is really easy to achieve when you color everything to match. Here is a quick little tutorial for those of you who have purchased these beauties. Those of you who haven't.....let me enable you! Hop on over to My Favorite Things to get a fantastic price on these markers! Kim is so wonderful to deal with over there.

Do you find that you have bottles and bottles of primas but sometimes don't have quite the right shade? It happens to me. Since purchasing my copics at MFT I have found a multitude of things I can color! The beauty of these copic markers is the ability to color and not leave those awful streaks behind. I love the 144 color variety I have to choose from!
To color I simply used the broad tip of the marker and this process goes very quickly. Make sure you have some scrap paper behind your flower....not your project! LOL!
Since I have two accent colors on my project I wanted to back the green prima I colored with this purple one. This will also tie in my ribbon and stamped flowers.
Finally color your ribbon. I have used grosgrain but this also works with satin ribbons as well. I have yards and yards of white and off white and now my colors are limitless! Love it! Hope I've inspired you to get out and color!
