Hello Baby Card

I'm still getting the hang of Copic Markers. I LOVE them, however sometimes, they just don't blend like I want them too. In all reality, I simply need practice.I spent a good amount of time last night putting all this together. If you follow my Facebook page, you started to see bits and pieces of this card as it was put together.

For the beak
Used a little N0 for shading in the eyes - though hard to see here.

For the bird body, I used Y00 and B00.

And the flags... oh yes. I used a few too many, but I was having fun/trouble (is there a difference in art?).

R22, R24, R29, Y00, Y13, Y17, BV00, V15, V17, B00, B12, B14, YG03, G14, YG17

WHOA! Yeah. I'll have to work on that :)

On the inside, I used a Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards stamp and a couple more flags (I had stamped and colored extras, just in case I messed up big time).

I love these markers - even though more practice is needed. What markers do you prefer?

Also used: Hero Arts Friendly Flags clear stamps, Heidi Grace Baby clear stamps, Technique Tuesday Sweet Baby (by Ali Edwards) clear stamps, Stampede stamp #ST09105, Pattern Paper from Grade School Stack-DCWV, Sugar'nCream Twists
