Copics Coloring

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.

  1. Nice job on your card. ;-) I'm sure your son will be happy to receive some happy mail! I'm looking forward to learning how to color skin, too. I'd love to do some 'people images' like this one, but I haven't been brave enough up to this point. Hopefully I'll learn something in class! Thanks for your kind comment on my blog post - I appreciate it. ;-)
