Copic Class Day 9, Creating Backgrounds

Hi, sweet friends,

You can probably tell by now which Copic markers I am still waiting eagerly to receive refills for. This class will take you through every drop of ink in your markers, so if you plan on taking it, and it's THE best coloring class ever :) then make sure you already have all of your refills and your markers are almost but not quite dripping good and ready.

Today's class was even better than yesterday. However, you won't be able to see that my looking at the background I made LOL. It was the first time I ever used the chisel tip end of a Copic marker. Definitely a long learning curve... I ran out of C5 while creating the shadow, tried to add C3 and made more of a mess rather than shadows.

To plug up some empty space, I added 3 butterflies and some squiggily flowers, their vines drawn by a marker. Wink of Stella clear covers the butterflies and flowers. The sweet little girl is wearing a pink stud earring and has a clear stud on the pocket of her overalls.

But I LOVE LOVE LOVE the class, and this stamp image by Phyllis Harris and this "First Love" set. It's available at Unity Stamp Company. Today's obstacle for me was 1) create a background using Copics, and 2) This will be a one layer card (thud), mistakes and all.

Thank you very much for stopping by to take a look at what we are doing in class (kisses).

Kisses to each of you ♥
