I love this stamp! Loving the markers too! So easy to make a clean card without the mess of watercoloring. No more guessing which Copics match my paper and ink. Can't wait to do more of them! It's been nice being off the couch today!

Just lovely! Can't wait to get my markers! Hope my coloring turns out half as good as yours.

Thanks. I didn't follow the directions given during the catalog premiere. I worked one petal at a time when shading as well, just as I would with Copics. I still worked from darkest to lightest. I used the fine tip, as the brush tip lays down too much color for my liking. I'm also afraid of breaking it. Without being able to replace the brush end I plan on using it sparingly. I will work on a color map one of these days. Just try one petal at a time if you're working with flowers so the ink doesn't dry before you can blend it.

Wow...LOVE how you colored and fussy cut your flower. Your button looks perfect as well as your simple framing. One petal would be my advice too. I am learning that you need to keep your ink wet as you go from dark to light so you can blend the lines better.
I don't think you have to worry about the brush tip. Being nylon it should be very durable. TFS, Nancy
