My First ATC

Well Hi everyone, today I have been busy playing with my new Copic's and I thought I would enter in the Mad for Markers Challenge which is to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card), and then send it to Mad for Markers for a Swap!!  Cool fun:-)  I've never made one of these before and gosh they are tiny!!  It measures 2.5" x 3.5".... so I hope who ever gets it will like my efforts:-)


Anyway seen so I'm bit new to Copics I thought I would try out some Feather Blending on the wings - which I don't think I got quiet right - but I reckon it still looks pretty good!!  Then I did normal blending on the body of the birdy - which is a Magnolia Image in case your wondering (one of the new ones I got last week).  I also used my Copic's on the cherry blossom to make it kinda match!! Added a bit of ribbon some glitter and some bling which is some of my favourite things to put on a card.  I would have put some Lace, but there isn't enough room!!! 

Hope your all having a great Hump Day......

Hugs
Karen
