Copics and Coloursoft class at The Glitter Pot

Hi everyone.

Just wanted to let you all know that I have an all day colouring class at The Glitter Pot on Saturday 11th April showing how to colour dainty images firstly using Copics on their own and then using Copics combined with Coloursoft pencils which gives you a softer look - ideal for dainty imagery.
If anyone is interested you'll need to contact The Glitter Pot to book :).

Last minute cards!!

Helloooo!!!  Last Saturday I stepped in at the last minute to cover a Copic Colouring class at The Glitter Pot. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to make my coloured images into cards as there just wasn't enough time but since then I've popped them onto some cards - although most of them are VERY simple I thought I'd share them with you anyway!

First up is the more involved card. For this one I used an embossing folder and some dies to decorate the plain pearlescent Bazzill card. The stamp is a new one by Penny Black called Make a Wish! which was coloured using Copic markers. I distressed around the image with Tumbled Glass. The embossing folder is a Crafts Too one (Sweet Flowers)and the dies are by Memory Box - Puffy Clouds and Grand Oak Tree.

 Here's a bit of a closer look at the colouring for you.
Next up is a very simple card of the same image just stuck onto Crafter's Companion watercolour card and edged with a black marker.
Here's the same image again just distressed with Tumbled Glass distress ink with Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel added for interest and texture.

Next up is another new Penny Black image called Carrot Collector again coloured with Copics and mounted onto Crafter's Companion watercolour card.
And lastly here is that same image this time distressed with Bundled Sage distress ink with Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel added.
I have another Copic based class coming up at The Glitter Pot on Saturday 11th April - this time using Copics with Coloursoft pencils which enables you to create softer images with more detail!
