Game of snowballs anyone???

I wonder if we will get any of the white stuff 
here in the UK this winter.

Here is a card using one of the new
Make it Crafty
 digital images

Now my sticky Copic saga continues......
(the E's are out to get me) 
so I grabbed my pencils to rescue the areas that were causing me grief
and to save my sanity.

Thank you by the way for all the tips and tricks you have been
kindly sending me regarding this annoying phenomena.
Regrettably as yet I have not found a satisfactory solution, but I will
of course let you know if I do! 

Here is Melissa in more detail

I also had a play with acrylic white paint, glitter glue and one of Zoe's new
delicate snowflake chippies.
Prepping the chippie with white acrylic gives you a fab base
allowing the glitter glue to sparkle to the max!

Awesome job hunny! Oh how I wish I could get the depth of light and shade you achieve - she could just step off that card and splat someone with that snowball. Truly wonderful. Hugs Sxx

A super card, Jane. As for the white stuff - it can snow at 2.00 when everyone is at their lunchtime destination as long as it stops and has melted by 3.00 so that everyone can get home again. Hugs, Lesley

If I need ideas for colour's I know exactly where to look. I love the colour's you pick up from the backing papers. Fantastic colour for a Christmas card.

Just gorgeous Jane! Fab card and stunning colouring.

I'm very new to copics (although I'm used to promarkers) and have had problems with sticky E markers too, so I'll be interested to see if you come up with a solution! A lot of the advice I've seen online seems to suggest that refilling or cleaning is needed, but as mine are new I don't think that's the issue. I'll carry on covering it with pencils until you find the miracle cure lol :o) Hugs, Lisa x
