Practicing with Copic Markers

Copic Markers are a high quality brand of alcohol-based markers that artist use. From what I've learned they are top choice for Anime artists. A few years back I saw stampers and scrapbookers begin using these markers. Since then I've been investing in them. They are quite expensive.

I've said it on my blog before I'm not a fan of coloring stamped images. I usually stay away from stamps that are outlines for that reason. Except I love Papertrey Ink's "Year of Flowers" stamps. My first few attempts at coloring with Copics haven't gone well.

A few weeks back I went to a friend a fellow Close To My Heart consultant's house to learn more about using them. I think the key is using various shades in a color family and blending by going back over colors. I'll be taking classes at Creating Keepsakes in a few weeks. Here are my practice results:
