U Pick the Pumpkin

I tried my hand at coloring with Copic markers.

I need lots more practice, but I had fun trying.

One didn't get beyond the trash, but this one wasn't too bad.

The stamp was a birthday gift from a dear friend who does the most fantastic Copic coloring!

I'll enter at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge


I hope you are all having a very nice Fall.
Or Autumn,
Or Spring if you're in the Southern Hemisphere.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Bonnie, your description had me chuckling! You are a little hard on yourself! What a wonderful image and you did great with it! I too, still struggle with copics after all these years. Thus, pencil fixes everything. Love this wonderful, fall card and what a lovely gift from a friend!

Bobby said...

I only have a few Copics and haven't gotten the hang of them. I think you did a great job for a first try, Bonnie. I'm glad your friend sent you this stamp to encourage you to use them.

Sandy said...

You did a really nice job Bonnie - I gave all my Copics away -- I always dreaded coloring with them - would rather use pencils. I love the colors you chose!

I'm not very good with Copic markers either - I've given up and just use them as if they were regular markers and colour in my images with them without trying to do the blending, etc.

Love the bright colours you used and the fun image - makes me think of a perfect sunny autumn day, not a grey rainy one like I'm having here!

Your coloring is just great! If I could water color as well as you, I'd be in hog heaven. Love what you've done with this image, and it's a terrific fall card! Give yourself a back pat on your it is fine. Would love to see what you thought needed to go in the trash too! Big hugs, TFS, and ya'll have a good week.
