Leaving on a Jet Plane

Hi there!

I'm heading out of town on Thursday to Ohio for a crafty retreat with some amazing ladies and I am so excited! But before I leave, I wanted to finally share some cards I created with all the different images I've colored, using Copic Markers, for the most recent online card class.

It was such a fun class and even though I've used Copics quite a bit in the past, I learned a lot from the awesome lessons and videos! Plus, it felt really good to get out those markers again and color.

I'll just share each card here, one after the other. The last one is for Day 13, the last day of class, which was a play day and titled, "Having Fun." 












I still need to work on certain areas of shading, like shadows and skin. Practice makes perfect, right? And it's lots of fun to practice with Copics! My favorite day of class was when we were taught to color hair!

Most of the images on the cards were from downloads we received in class for practicing. For the last card, I used a new Simon Says Stamp set called, Cups and Succulents. I love this set - it's so fun to color! And there's a die set to go with it too.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful week! ♥ 

I know I will! :)
