My new Copic markers....

I am always looking for new art supplies, I have been interested in Art Journaling lately and have spent many hours viewing YouTube, so I decided I would love to have some Copic markers, made in Japan, so they are expensive and very worth it.
So, a friend asked me to make some cards for Bunco, it was very fun because I got to use my markers.

I wanted to have egg shaped papers for the names, I discovered a cutting system I bought from creative memories years ago, I had forgotten about it, I am glad I had it, it worked out great. The thing with Copics that I am learning is it is  in the markers, which are great, but it is in the paper too.
I found a good Bristol, I like Canson, is the key. The paper has to be smooth with a small amount of absorbency. The beauty of Copics is the fact that they can be blended.
I linked the art supplies with Dick Blick because they are usually cheaper.
