Copic Class Day 10 - Creating Backgrounds

Hi friends,

Today's try went better than yesterday's. I stayed away from the grays which I am still waiting for refills to arrive.  The colors are mostly within one family group - the browns. Even the pinks you see are from the E group in Copic markers (Earth tones). For the background, I used BG10, the lightest I have in that group. I then used the Blender or "0" pen to soften the outer edges. No bling, no Wink of Stella. The birds are only here because a deep smudge turned up. My hands are very clean, so it must have been from a marker tube or its lid.

It's a lovely stamp set, similar to yesterday's, both by Phyllis Harris. This one is called " ...and for a moment" -- I love it!!! It reminds me of when I was a teenager, taking care of horses at summer camp. I would get up very early each morning, and with another girlfriend, we would care for our horses, saddle up, and take off freely through the woods and pine trees of the Pacific Northwest. Ahhh, another lifetime ago.

I am going to cry when this class is over. I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed each day. Highly recommend you take it, even if you want independent study because it's overflowing with video tutorials, overflowing!
