    Love this blog! Just what I needed to practice with my new copics. I’m now a copic-crazed crafter (“CCC”) so I’ll be posting here often! ; )

    This was a great challenge – I had a lot of fun choosing the right stamp image and trying to make those faces and skin tones as pretty as I could.. There’s no secret that I love my Copics (well, don’t we all?).
    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous projects and inspiring tutorials!

    Here’s my entrance:
