Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend, in what ever you chose to do. I still have one more day of my holiday days from work so I am having an extended weekend, so will get some ironing done tomorrow and hopefully finish my on going current large project.
Today I am thrilled to say........... thank you to Lynn at Grimsby Crafts. For giving me the opportunity to run my first ever card class. I got some lovely texts this morning wishing me luck, thank you ladies really appreciated you keeping me in your thoughts. As you can imagine this morning I felt quite sick and as I drove to the shop, thought that I might need a bucket, however after the first 10 minutes, I quickly got into my stride and the nerves ran away.
I was very lucky to have a full class of very lovely and talented ladies, who were very kind to me, and even though the did not know it was my first class they were gentle on me, one at the end even said she though I was a seasoned pro, so with that said and Lynn's confirmation the class was a great success and I already have names on my next class.
We concentrated on colouring techniques with copics and pro markers as well as building the card, I hope I did not scare any of them away.................... as there was a lot of information to take in, but with luck I will see them all again for the next class.
I am gutted that I forgot to take a photo (my memory of the first class), but don't think I will ever forget it, it was so very very special :)
Today we created a card for a little man with an image where the light source was visible to aid learning the shading. We also looked at blending and colour matching.
Here is the card we worked towards
The full contents of this card, base contrast card, papers pearls, inks and the Kanban image are available to purchase at Grimsby Crafts. The full copic ciao including the new colours should be available at Grimsby Crafts at the beginning of next week (oh I cannot wait...............)
I am entering this card into the following challenges

I would also like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments, they always warm my heart and put a smile on my face
Enjoy the remainder of your weekend
