Grimsby Crafts Colouring Class - Easel

Good morning to you all

On Saturday afternoon after what seems to be like half a years break to adjust to my new job, I finally ran a copic class. It was great to see all my wonderful classy mates and some new ones.  Had a great catch up but here is what I made for them to follow in the class. 

The colouring technique learnt was the background colouring, as so many of them now are shining with their own colouring and a different way of texturizing fur.

So here is the card
with one of the many fabulous images from this range, sold at Grimsby Crafts.

The base layer is black, with red and grey papers from the shop.  Beautifully set off with this gorgeous red with black polka dots ribbon tied in a triple bow, also from Grimsby Crafts.  I love her new range of bling, this jet black set has some tiny stars which are so pretty.

I used one of my nesties for the easel return sentiment and the sentiment is one of my old ones but it just sorted of fit the image.

The image fully coloured in copics.  Using a very limited colour palette.
E31, 33, 35, 37
R81, 85
R59, 29, 27, 22
W7, 5,3,2,1,0
C7, 5,3,2,1,0

A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter the following challenges
