I have joined an Online Card Class: Copic Markers for Card Makers. I have had most of my markers for years, but never actually took lessons on using them correctly. I have watched you tube videos made by the ladies who are teaching these classes, and love their work, so I decided to join the class. Best thing about these classes is the videos are available forever....so I can refer back to them as time goes on and I forget the lessons.
Coincidentally, I needed to make a birthday card for my son, so after practicing on other images, I completed this one. I used a piece of Gina K pure luxury(120lb) for the card base and decided to make it a one layer card.
I love that the paper did not allow any colors to bleed through, but I also noticed that the memento tuxedo black that I used smeared a little around his face. I was going for a dirty faced little boy, so I wasn't too upset. My son lives in HI, and I was trying to get a beach effect on the bottom, but got carried away, maybe.
I can see that I need to especially pay attention to the skin coloring class. Looking forward to all the lessons.
