Many Blessings, Copic style!

I have been practicing again with the copic markers! I think this fruit lends itself well to copic markers. The fruit image reminds me of still life drawings we drew in college, before computers and you had to hand draw everything! Well, this is by far a much better drawing than I ever could create! I so enjoy watching the fruit come to life when applying color. Click on the picture to enlarge and get more detail of coloring. As a beginnner copic user here are two learned tips, do not be afraid to saturate the image with color, and stamp many images at one time to practice so you can move from one to the next if you do not like how it is developing. I know this from experience! LOL I copic colored the fruit bowl as well and cut out. It is bent a bit and adhered with foam to give dimension. This set, Mixed Greetings has so many possibilities, it is one of three new sets FLOURISHES just released. I will have a project using one of the other sets tomorrow! Flourishes is offering a buy it all bundle too! Savings for you! Go check it out!
Please post a comment on the previous post to win awesome blog candy! And a shout out Happy One Year blog Anniversary to Sharon Johnson! Congratulations, my friend!
