So this is bliss...

After a LOT of fence-sitting, I finally ordered the full set of Copic Ciao markers!! I got them from ebay and there were a couple problems with the seller, but he fixed them all and it only took 3 days to get from California to Hawaii!

The very first thing I did was to color a little, but then I immediately ran to the computer and created my own Ciao color chart. It took me 3 tries, but I finally got it and now it's in a page protector on my work area.

Then I needed to test them out so I played more with my Doodle Factory creatures from Starving Artistamps.

First up was Yapples. I chose him specially for his excited look because the message inside the card is "I got my Copics!" This card is going to a co-worker who is also anxiously awaiting the arrival of my markers!
Next up was Zot. I picked him because the size of his eyes perfectly fit the 2 different sizes of google eyes that I bought specially for these little guys (Yapples' head was too small for the bigger size so I had to just use the little size). The inside of this card reads "mmm... coffee!"
I need to work on my photography because the shading I did really isn't showing. I'm hoping that I'll have some bigger, better samples to show off my new markers soon!

Other materials used: notecards from Michael's; black Brilliance inkpad from Tsukineko; white cardstock from Georgia Pacific; Apricot Appeal cardstock (on Yapples card) from Stampin' Up!; yellow ink (sponged around Zot edges) from Stampin' Up!; Nestabilities from Spellbinders; google eyes from Darice.
