The Chomas Creations adjustable holders & Copic markers

Can you imagine drawing pretty much image you already own, or pretty much any image you can find online and trace, and then color them in with the Copic markers?  Of course you could also use Spectrum Noir, Promarkers, colored pencil, even crayon! 
If you would like some awesome video tutorials on how to trace images with the Silhouette Studio software you have to go to Kay's blog Clever Someday and watch Tracing without Tears!  I've been using the Silhouette Studio software for quite some time, but I even learned a few things watching her videos on tracing!
Now these are just some fonts I had on my computer that I used for the names on these frames.  I have a Copic Multiliner which is the black you see that I drew.  These don't smear with the Copic Markers.  I know there are other markers out there that won't smear but I don't know what they are, but I would love to add them to the list if you know what they are! Just email me amyc222@yahoo.com or comment on here!

I added the Copic Multiliner to the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder in the Cameo and drew the names on these frames.  I used a thickness of 5, a speed of 7 and a multicut of 2 (this really made the black even nicer!)   I also used Kay's dingbat font she has on her computer for the ovals, it has a bunch of shapes that I find very useful.  You can find that here... dingbat font
I'm not the best at coloring with Copics, but I try lol!!  I did find out that adding some Mod Podge to the top of the colored in Copics did not smear them at all!  Now I know they will be protected to.
