Hi Friends! It my turn to bring you this week's Tuesday Tips and Tricks at the iCopic Blog! Have you ever found yourself searching for the perfect matching embellishments for your projects? You look through all your supplies and find you have every other color except the one you need. Well here comes Copic markers to the rescue. One of my favorite features about Copic markers are their ability to color on multiple surfaces. Did you know you can create your own custom colored pearls and gems for your projects? Just select the color you need from the wonderful array of Copic markers and color directly over any white pearl or clear gem. It's that easy! Today's projects show just how easy it is to create your own custom embellishments using those fabulous Copic markers available at iCopic.

Have you all seen the iCopic July Release of these adorable new Wild Rose Studio stamps? My card features the super sweet Milton with Barrow stamp. Isn't Milton the cutest? These images are so fun to color and embellish. I wanted to embellish the center of the flowers, but of course I did not have yellow pearls or gems. So I just whipped up my own by coloring with Y18 over tiny white pearls. Woo Hoo! ~ instant yellow pearls!

Next up, I thought we should have a little Christmas in July! Here's a little sneak peek to of my project. Be sure to visit the iCopic Blog for the full details. It really is so quick and easy to create your own custom embellishments. I hope you give it a try!!! Remember all your favorite Copic colors are available at iCopic at an incredible price.

Thanks for visiting and Have a Great Day!
