Just Because - Mixed Media Tag - Copic Markers and Distress Oxides

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a mixed media tag with you.

I happened to see some Copic Markers on sale in October and had never tried them, so I ordered them on-line. Sadly the supplier over-sold on-line and so they did not have on hand anymore.  But they ordered more for me and I waited 7 weeks for them to arrive! LOL
I had to be very patient! ;-)

I watched quite a few YouTube videos and then gave it a shot to colour some hydrangeas for this mixed media tag.
Here is the result.

I used distress oxides for the background and then stamped and coloured the flowers, which I later fussy cut.

Here is a closer look at the flowers and my Copic work.

I think I can certainly practice some more, but I do love how it turned out.

I wasn't sure if Copic was really for me...but I have decided that they definitely are and the way they blend is just amazing! That was the deal breaker for me! ;-)
So I will probably be adding to my very small collection, in the near future! ;-)

I don't think anyone ever said, "I have enough craft goodies"!!!!! ;-)

Thanks again for stopping by!
Have a fabulous, fabulous day!

  3. This is gorgeous Denise. I haven't bought any new products for ages but after reading and seeing this I am tempted. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. x

  4. A gorgeous card Denise. I'm a huge fan of the Distress Oxides background and the Hydrangeas have come up a treat. What a long time to wait for your goodies, but they do look stunning. I'm still trying to use what I have on hand, but occasionally splurge on some Cocoa Vanilla papers for my girlies. Have a good week end.

  5. beautiful tag Denise! and congrats with your new craft goodies )) it's never enough! )))) unfortunatelly I had over-sold problems twice when I tried to buy some hand-dyed threads for x-stitching on different sites and both times were unsuccesfull - I should wait some time then ask shop about my order and waiting for refund..... aggggrh!
