Copic Class 5/10/13

Good afternoon to you all
Had a super afternoon catching up with the ladies and young man at the Copic Class

I taught them how to use their blender to make texture using a flannel and also another surround technique

Here is the card they created and the image they worked on
It is a retirement card, although the ladies and young man, can adapt to suit their own needs :)
All of the items on the card can be purchased at Grimsby Crafts along with the copics.
The base layer is kraft the complimenting papers in the lovely mint green these papers are found in the 12 x 12 area of the shop.  The lace and the little flower in the embellishment baskets and the pearls on the rotary display.
The sentiments are in the stamp pack.

Here is a close up of the image, coloured in copics with that textured bear.

Hugs and Enjoy Your Day

Copic Colouring Class

Good morning to you all

On Saturday afternoon after what seems to be like half a years break to adjust to my new job, I finally ran a copic class. It was great to see all my wonderful classy mates and some new ones.  Had a great catch up but here is what I made for them to follow in the class. 

The colouring technique learnt was the background colouring, as so many of them now are shining with their own colouring and a different way of texturizing fur.

So here is the card

All the elements used are available in the shop except the sentiment which is one of my old ones.

I used one of my nesties for the easel return sentiment and the sentiment is one of my old ones but it just sorted of fit the image.

The image fully coloured in copics.  
E31, 33, 35, 37
R81, 85
R59, 29, 27, 22
W7, 5,3,2,1,0
C7, 5,3,2,1,0

Enjoy the rest of your day

Primary Colours at the Copic Class

Morning all in the land of blog
Apologise for the delay in posting "ladies of Grimsby Crafts"
Had a fabulous day on Sunday with some wonderful ladies in the Copic Class.
I am taking a short break from classes but hope it won't be too long before I am back :) I will miss you all so much.  I got some great tips on Sunday and cannot wait to try them out.

Here is the card that the ladies made in class, it was created as part of a request and I hope that it fitted the bill, so to speak
I went for a birthday card, and some great primary colours and loved the finished look.
The base layer and contrast is a true red, with some lovely diamond pattern blue papers and some stripy yellow papers all off the shelves in the Shop.
The pearls have been coloured with copics B97 and the ribbon which has been used to make a double bow is also from the shop.
