Nature Trail Ted

Oh dear!!  I've been really rubbish at loading cards up this week haven't I?  I just don't know where the time goes to!!  Anyway here is one of the cards that we made a couple of weeks ago at one of my Glitter Pot classes.  This was a class focussing on colouring bears with Copics and believe it or not there were actually 4 shades of brown used on this bear to get this result!!

All the imagery is by Penny Black including the wording and flourishy bits and of course the colouring was achieved using both Copic Ciaos and Copic Sketch markers.  I am gradually increasing my Sketch markers to supplement my Ciao colours and it most definitely makes a difference once you get the missing colours that you need to achieve a good blend between the different shades.

The close up picture shows the colouring up a bit better.  I really enjoy colouring with my Copics now as I've had quite a bit of practice with them and practice definitely helps!!

Anyway I hope you like the card!  It's been a long time coming hasn't it????

Hi Kay

Thank you for your lovely comment, I'm with you about this lack of time thing and now The Craft Garden Household has picked up a really horrible bug and I am currently the last man standing so not much blogging time this week either. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed I don't catch it too!!
I love your Bear card, he's adorable. I wonder where he's off too?
Well must go and mop some brows!!
Take care
