Marci With Rose - Speed Copic Coloring

Hello everyone!

I was asked several times to film a video on how I color the images for my cards with the Copics markers... Well... It took me a long time but today I am ready to post my first video of this kind.

It's not a tutorial, but I tried to keep the caps of my markers with the code up for you to see them.

I hope you will find the video useful.
The image I chose to color was from La-La Land Crafts - Marci With Rose.



And here you can see the codes of the Copics I used:


Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!
