Learn as I go! Bombshell Stamps-Man's Ruin

Hello blogger world! And a warm welcome to all my followers...um...that would be all 0 of you so far. lol.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I don't have a clue what I'm doing and what I really want to know is if I can figure out how to post a picture here.




I've been a card maker and scrapbooker for the last 20ish years and have just recently fallen in love with the Copic markers! Maybe a little obsessed! I've nick named them,"My precious". hehehe.
It all started off very innocently last June when my bff gave me my very first Kraftin Kimmie stamps. They were Talullahbelle, and Clarabelle the fairies.
I used to own the whole beautiful set of Prisma pencil crayons. I think it was the set of 120?  Could have been more, as it seemed like there was every color I could dream up and then some in that set. I never really used them and then they somehow got misplaced in my last move four years ago. Anyway it was the biggest set Michael's carried at the time and at least I was able to use a 40% off coupon to purchase them. *Sigh* Well collecting the Copics have certainly helped me deal with the loss of my crayons!
...Okay back to how my love of Copics began...All I really had left to color my stamped images with were those Zig pigment brush markers so I used those. Then I googled those fairies and saw how beautiful they could actually look if colored with the Copics! That was it for me! I began collecting them in November 2011 and so far now I have 144.
I also fell in love with the kraftin' Kimmie stamps and my collection of those has grown from 2 to 21.
Thanks Kimmie for having such an awesome boxing week sale!!!


 The pictures I added are of the very first time I used my Copics. Watched a few Youtube videos and thought I would give it a go. The stamped image is  called Man's Ruin from Bombshell Stamps
