As promised I'm going to show you the 2 things we did st the Copic class. I did not finish the "coloring" sheet as I still don't have a large enough (got 80!) selection of "hair" colors of markers.
Jenny, a Copic-employed teacher, had this practice sheet made specifically for her. I still have 4 more little gals to color when I get more markers. She just laughed when she seen my ghoul and goblin girls and showed my page to the class. I colored these gals like I did in honor of Barb's Haunted Design House characters. I don't do spooky but can do kinda cute. The nice thing about this sheet as it gives spaces to write the Copic marker colors so you know what you used. I'm still working on the "feathering" technique but more practice will definitely help.
We also played with air compressors and air brushing. What a cool look! And I had to add more bling!
How do you like my flower? The lace was colored by putting some alcohol into a jar, adding a couple drops of Copic marker refill, than dropping in the lace and shaking. The lace is adhered with Copic tape but I didn't like the shine of the tape in the holes of the lace so I added little pearls in the bigger holes. You can barely see them but they're there! And I used the I*Rock tool to add blue metallic crystals to the flourishes and more pearls to the flower petals. I think any more is over-kill.
We had a challenge over on TAC's Paper Crafting community of doing One Layer only (not counting embellishements). Sometimes I find it easy and other times, not. There are so many great cards done that I had to work pretty hard to come up with something different, to my way of thinking...
I used a light tan cardstock, Hiero Horses, Happy Trails, and Joyful Notes. And I used only 1 ink, Burnt Umber PH! Can you figure out how I did this??
Here's a closer view of the horse. I do have a "tutorial" on this, just look down the sidebar a bit to resources and find the Crumpled Paper Technique.
