Geisha Anya - A Vision in Purple - Truly Scrumptious Challenge # 1

Well, I got my copics for quite a while now, but haven't used them much. So I thought it was time to give them a try. The Geisha Anya is one of my first images (actually my second) colored using my copics. I used the tutorial from Suzanne J Dean which I think is one of the best to follow and understand and it helped me a lot to get along with my copic markers. I know I need a looooot more practice but I wanted to use the image anyway. I love Geisha Anya from The Greeting Farm. You'll find The Greeting Farm stamp line and lots of other stamp and everything you need for card making in Summers Store ! And don't forget there is a new challenge starting tomorrow on our Roses on Paper Challenge Blog!

This card is also my entry for the first challenge at Truly Scrumptious. It's a new challenge blog, they'll launch a new challenge every other Wednesday. The first one was a sketch challenge. I had a lot of fund working with the sketch!

Meine Copic markers habe ich nun schon 'ne ganze Weile, aber habe sie eigentlich noch gar nicht benutzt. Darum dachte das wird nun mal langsam Zeit! Die Geisha Anya ist eines meiner ersten Motive (um genau zu sein mein 2.) die ich mit meinen Copics coloriert habe. Ich habe mich an dem Tutorial von Suzanne J Dean orientiert, welches ich finde ist mit eines der Besten und auch verstaendlichsten. Es hat mir viel geholfen mit den Copics klar zu kommen. Ich weiss ich brauche noch viiiiiiiiel Uebung aber ich wollte das Motiv auf jedenfall benutzen. Und ich liebe die Geisha Anya von The Greeting Farm. The greeting Farm Stempel und noch viele andere gibt es bei Summer im Shop und noch vieles andere was man zum Kartenbasteln benoetigt! Und vergesst nicht morgen startet wieder eine neue Challenge auf unserem Roses on Paper Challenge Blog!

Diese Karte ist auch gleichzeitig mein Beitrag fuer die erste Truly Scrumptious Challenge. Ein neuer Challenge Blog wo jeden 2. Mittwoch neue Challenges gestartet werden. Die erste ist eine Sketchchallenge. Ich hatte viel Spass mit dem Sketch zu arbeiten.
