Last card for 2014

I saw this gorgeous stamp called "the Wiz" from Mo Manning and fell in love with it right away. Isn't he just awesome? Sure this is going to be a favorite. I gave him some color with my Copics. Unfortunately I borrowed my Mac to my son for the next upcoming days (how wise was this?) so I have to give you to Copicnumbers the old fashioned way. No PS without my Mac either. I hope the pics will be good enough to honor this amazing little fellow.
Copics used:
YG 95, 93, 91, E 43, 44 (the robe)
E 43, 44 (hat)
B 95, 93, 91 ( crystal ball)
E 41, 43, C 1, W 3 (beard/hair)
E 000, 00, 11 (skin)

Christmas card production 2014 has started!


Yesterday I was on my first Copic Marker course (course I & II) at Bikuben and it was soo fun and I learned soo much!! It also became clear to me that there is so much more to learn and so many areas on which I can improve myself! So this upcoming two weeks will exist of exercise, exercise and exercise! Next modules (course III & IV will be on November 1st. and I am really looking forward to it! Back to today! I made this first Christmas card for this year, The stamp is from North Star Stamps. I got it yesterday together with some other stamps as a birthday present from my youngest son. Isn´t he cute? Colored- I guess you guessed that- with Copics. Below the last pic you can see the numbers I used. The card is quit simple just because I often think that less really is more. I stashed the inside with some craft paper and the die from Memory Box and left enough "white" to write a nice season greeting. Hope you like it :)
