iCopic: What To Do In Desperate Times!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

 I have just spent a wonderful week at the beach near Southern California.  I had a wonderful  time and the weather was gorgeous!  However - that leads me to the little "tip and trick" I am going to share with you today.   I was so proud of myself for packing lightly.  You now what I mean!   Those craft bags we take on vacation can really add up to be more than our clothing! OK - more than clothing for the whole family!   I was in the process of coloring my image with Copics and my violet Copics I needed  for my mid-tone and highlight ran out of ink.  You got it.... it was dry.  My card was due (like yesterday)! No - there were not any Copic stores near.  iCopic was too far and Fed Ex wouldn't cooperate!

To learn the little trick I used - check out my little tutorial on iCopic HERE!

I hope you like it!
