Bunnies everywhere!

Believe it or not, this is the last card I made this past Monday! This is also the first chance I have had to post. I do not own this Tilda either. When I first began copics - little over a year ago, (I know, it doesn't seem that it could have only been a year!) I signed up for lots of swaps. Then I ended up with lots of stuff I didn't know what to do with!! I didn't make Easter cards last year. I intend to do so this year, which is why I colored so many images that were the result of a swap! All Tildas and Edwins are absolutely adorable to me!! I had this cute bunny paper that I absolutely destroyed trying to make a frame or something for my image - you know, one of those brain dead days! So to salvage part of it, I cut some bunnies out! Desperate, I was, to use that paper one way or another! Then they looked so plain that out came the stickles and some brads to fancy them up a bit. I made a whole lot of bunnies in a couple of different sizes - I just couldn't get anymore on the card!! Of course there had to be room for ribbon and flowers!! So here are the copics I used: E00, E11, E33, E35, E37, R20, BV02, RV000, RV02, RV04, RV06.



















I am a huge believer that if you want to do something - anything- you can. You just have to keep trying until you figure it out. Sometimes you learn quickly, other times, it takes almost blood to learn! And then there is the element of practice. If you are doing something wrong, all the practice in the world won't get it for you. Books, videos, classes, friends, lots of questions. Those are the secrets to success. I misunderstood the reason for the certification classes when I signed up. Then when I got into the class, I was sooo excited!! There were people of all degrees of competentcy in that copic class, so I didn't feel too out of place. I did learn what I had been doing wrong and also some things, a lot of things, that I didn't even know about. After that class is when I began to really make strides! I have lots to learn yet, but at least I am not making sooo many mistakes and can use most of what I color. I hope this is helpful to the newbies reading this. Everyone is new at sometime!! Hugs to you all, Barb F
