Breaking in the Copics!

Well, I did it! I stared at my beautiful box of Copics all morning and all afternoon long. I finally took off the plastic wrap after the boys were in bed. I didn't know where to start, so I picked out a few colors for the leaves, branch, and the owls. Then I decided to write down the item code and scribble each color next to it so that I had a better idea of what they looked like on the Whisper White cardstock (also so that I could remember what I had picked out). Then I just went for it.

So... what do you think?

Please remember it's my first time ever using the Copics... construtive critism is greatly appreciated. If anyone has ever used the Copic Markers before and can offer me any advice, I would love to hear it!
