Copic "Earth Day" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 2014 Copic “Earth Day” Blog Hop

Earth Day, April 22, marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.  Over 40 years later, Earth Day has become a global event with over 200 million people in over 141 countries getting involved in the fight for a clean environment.

Did you know that Copic markers and inks are environmentally friendly?

•       Copic Various Inks are non-toxic, so there’ no worry about harmful chemicals getting into the environment.

•       Because you can refill your Copic markers when needed, you never have to throw them away!

•       The Copic Various Ink bottles are recycle-able.

All that refilling and recycling means less garbage in landfills and less negative impact on the environment.

 I have an "Earth" themed project to share on this hop! All colored with copic markers in this sweet little one layer card. I used the little tree from MFT's "Out on a Limb" stamped with their new Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink. The sentiment comes from "Inspired by Flowers I".

The ground is colored with E13,25,57 and 49. The sky was airbrushed using BG11,15 and B14, 34.
The sweet little tree using E53,33,57 and G40,46,99.

In celebration of Earth Day 2014, the Copic Education Team and Design Team has gotten together for a hop.  Visit each person’s blog to learn personal tips and tricks for refilling and caring for your markers… and/or some pretty eye candy along the way.
