First attempts with copics

In early March I attended a Copic marker certification class here in Memphis. These markers are gaining in popularity among paper crafters and stampers. I wanted to check out why they are so popular and to learn how to use them.

The class was fast-paced and very entertaining. Sally Lynn MacDonald was the instructor and she has THE BEST job in the world!
You can see dozens of demos on You-tube that show how to use these markers. So, I won't repeat any of that here. Here are some words and drawing that I did with the brush end of the marker. Some were cleaned up a bit in photoshop.
