Good morning!  Welcome to The ThINKin' Spot, and welcome to the first of what I hope is many coloring tutorials.  The first one, I tried to make easy.  This tutorial is great for those that don't have a wide variety of Copic markers in their collection.  Actually, choosing three of any color family, leaving 2-3 numbers between each color will achieve great results with these directions.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.


Here's a picture of the finished card made with the ghost I colored in the video.  This little sweet thang can be found at Peachy Keen Stamps (PK #619 Trick or Treat Ghost).  I used the blue panel to bring out the blue that I used to shade this little cutie.  I played along with the Mojo Monday sketch this week for the layout of this card.  The DP is from Basic Grey's Eerie collection, and the little bats were punched from my EK Success bat border punch. 


Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope I've inspired you to break out the Copics and start coloring.  Have a glorious day, and I wish you lots of happy stamping!

Love ya,

Lorie, I found your blog from Emma and I'm glad I did! I've been really wanting to get into the stamps and markers, but I have no clue where to start at. Thanks for sharing you video. I have so many questions on where to buy from and what's the difference from A and B markers? Thanks again so much and I look forward to your next video!!
