    This is so cute! You are about the 4th video I’ve watched with the new pink Copics and every single one has had issues with blending it. You, by far, did the best though. One was even an instructor! So be proud, you did great!

    So Simple and cute! Makes me SMILE!!!

    This little octopus card is soooooooooo cute And of course it is a girl – no boy would look so pretty now would he? Wish I could use copics it makes lovely cards, but as a beginner I have to go slowly slowly and learn each technique.

  • Sandie Scott July 27, 2014, 10:12 am

    love that idea

  • Dianne Waddell July 27, 2014, 10:24 am

    Sooo cute! Love the sequins. Very versatile, too. I haven’t seen the die used for a shaker card before. I like that it can be used for other cards too. DBW
