It's A Triple with those Secret Crafter Manga's for Grimsby Crafts

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Today I ran another great class at Grimsby Crafts for our copic addicts.

We had a lovely relaxed class and two wonderful fans as the weather here today has been hot hot hot!!!!!! So hot that almost all of us were heading off for a BBQ.

In today's class I taught facial blending, tip to tip blending, different types of copics, refilling copics and replacing copic nibs

This is the Triple Easel Card that we made
The clear polymer images available at Grimsby Crafts are Secret Crafter Manga Images - the beauty of these is that the face is rather large and allows the extra room to create the facial features using the copics.  These can also be purchased in digital format by clicking on the Secret Crafter shop logo in my side bar.  The papers are also available in the shop, the pearls are but have been coloured with the copics.

Here is a close up of each image
Colours used were
G99, G94, G82 (greens) Little boy
W1, W3, W7 (warm greys) hair on both images
E53, E51, E50 (creams) on both images
RV23, RV21, RV13 (red violets) the pinks on the little girl
R27, R22 (reds) for the little boys red apple.
E11, E00, E000 (earth tones) skin for both
BG000 (blue green) for the eyes
C1 (cool grey) for the outline on both images and the little girls inner mouth.
White gel pergamano pen from Grimsby Crafts.

The distress ink used around the image is Tim Holtz Crushed Olive
The swirl was a Prima clear stamp from my stash.
The centre Sentiment is from Grimsby Crafts
The inner sentiment is by My Sentiments Exactly and from my stash.
