My Copic Retreat Weekend

Good Morning Crafters, well you might wonder what the title of this post means, well Ive been away for the weekend on a Copic Retreat, wow what a fabulous time I had and I have Wendy of Stamps and Memories and the girls who attended to thank for that, they really made me feel part of a lovely group and the hotel in Didcot was fabulous though we did have a few hiccups but we wont dwell on those for now.
The idea of the retreat was to learn many ways of using our copic pens other than just colouring with them, air brushing, tip to tip, hair, skin, blending with pencils and several other methods of using them to their full potential and it was fun as well.
This card was created with the tip to tip method which is using a light colour and holding the darker one at the tip and then using the blended colours to do the flowers, I do hope you like the effect it gives.
I dont know whos papers these are but they do go so well with the colours Ive used on the image, which is one of the stampedous ones.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
