New Job Card


I made this card for a friend who has just got a new job at Nottingham University. (Woohoo! Well done her!) :-)

I followed the Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch for the layout and used a charm so that it would qualify for the Just Magnolia challenge. I also the distressed the background with pink ink so that I could enter it into the new Magnollia Tutorial Challenge.

I coloured my Tilda with my new Copic markers(!) I finally decided on the Ciao ones and bought 12 to see how I'd get on with them. I LOVE them already but can see that they will take a bit of practice to perfect... oh well, another excuse to make cards(!) Problem is now, I've got to collect some more colours or else everything is going to be coloured blue, red, brown or skin coloured(!)  :-D
I ordered my Copics from an online site called Cult Pens. They offer free delivery (on orders over £10) and the service was fantastic. I ordered at 2.30pm on a Tuesday and my pens arrived Wednesday morning!!

Fab card, love the colours and the DP. Your colouring is excellent.

I saw in your post that you are new to Copics. If you want some tips etc about colouring with Copic markers I can highly recommend Suzanne Dean's Blog she has some fab You Tube tutorials.
