Just Butterfly

I am enjoying my new stamps from Unity.  I think I am addicted to new rubbah lol.  I get something new, use it a bunch and then kind of forget about it.  I still have SU sets I havn't even mounted or inked up yet.  My new addiction is Copic markers, I love them.  I was very skeptical about them at first, but not anymore.  Here are a few reasons why I like them.
1. You lay down a base coat and its not dark enough you just go over your image again and it gets 1/2 shade darker.
2. You can color over different colors and you don't end up with brown.
3. Blender pen
I could go on and on about them I only have 21 of them and I want more lol.  What I did was I went through and picked colors that I knew I was going to use the most.  I didn't like all of the colors in the "sets".  If you are on the fence about them buy a few in the same color family, to try them out.  It can be really confusing at first with the letter and the numbering system, but its really easy.  I don't have any Stampin Up markers so I can't really tell you a comparison, but SU markers are water based and Copic's are alcohol based.
Back to the card, got off topic for a minute.  Its a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 square card on PTI stampers select card stock.  The designer paper is from the Sultry line by Basic Grey.  The stamp is from the Butterfly Beauties set from Unity Stamps. Ribbon is May Arts.

Gorgeous! I really want to try Copic markers, but I have so much, and I spend my money on so much, that I'm hesitant to even give them a try, because then I will want them ALL! I know I would love alcohol markers much better! For right now, I'll stick to my colored pencils and gamsol. That's my "thing" lately! I LOVE this card! Just wonderful! The lime green ribbon is just fabulous!
