WT179 Copic Challenge

WOW I am on a roll today!!! Here is another fun card I made for today's Ways to Use it Challenge "WT179" over at Splitcoast. As some of you know, Copic markers are HOT and really fun to work with. Since I am Copic Certified I am comfortable to say why I LOVE them so much! You can color on just about anything, ribbon, metal, glass, ect. They are refillable and come in a ton of colors and you can even erase with them (Blender marker). Since I got my stash of Copics, I have not even touched my colored pencils or SU Markers. If you have the chance to order a few, get a few markers in your favorite color and start playing. If you need some help, please stop by Marianne's Blog "I Like Markers", she posts everyday and has some of the best tutorials on how to use them.
So today's challenge is to use Copics. No Copic markers??? You can still play, use some other type of blending marker/colored pencil.
Here is a close-up picture. As you can see from the picture, I layered the ribbon on the present, paws and feet. For a little extra fun I added some glitter using the clear Spica pen.
Recipe ~ Stamps: Paper: Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Daisy Bucket Ink: Black Memento Accessories: Copics, Ribbon, Cuttlebug - DVine Swirls.
I would like give a special thanks to Vivienne from Crafting Haven, I could not of made this card with out her! Thanks Viv for all of the wonderful images, you are so sweet!! :)

Thanks again for visiting & all of your wonderful comments! :)

It was my pleasure Jen, and WHAT a pleasure to see what you did with 'Hedgy'! He's adorable and your use of the copics is awesome.

Have a really great weekend my friend.
