Wanna see what I made?!



Oh I went to the Copic and Pencil class yesterday afternoon at the Bella Boutique. The class was taught by the uber talented and very sweet Linda Heavens! I really enjoyed myself and bumped into some friends that I didn't know were taking the class. So much fun!!!

So, I now love my Prismacolor pencils!!! They just give that extra little sumthin' sumthin' to the image, don't they!? I guess I just needed a little push in the right direction! This is the only image I coloured out of the 3 used in the class...I admit it...I'm a slow poke,smile!

Don't look too closely now or you will see all my mistakes that I tried to cover in hopes that the untrained eye (my girlfriend) won't see them, smile! I'm not totally happy with the yellow shading around her it's too round and defined but not bad for my first time with pencils...love them in conjunction with the Copics and with practice it will start to look better.

Isn't she a cutie patootie...Meridith the Tea Cup Girl! I had to rush home after the class as Chris and I were invited out for dinner at friends house. So, when I got home I quickly used the supplies for this card that Linda provided and added in some of my own stuffs and whipped up this card to give to my friend to thank her for dinner! I used this absolutely scrumptious ribbon that I picked up at the Bella Boutique and I added the yellow AC cardstock scrap that was sitting on my table, a Melissa Frances rub-on and a bling heart! I also added a little Skaura Stardust pen!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my class card...I had a great time!

Hugs,

Aw Tara!! Gorgeous!! I have to admit, I was jealous when I heard you were going to this class. I love these mediums combined...just stunning!! Hope you will share some of the knowledge gained. One question...which Prismacolours did you use? I have a set of Scholar kicking around here, but I know that many people use the ones in the black tin (hmmm...are they called premier?? can't remember)

So glad you had a wonderful time!
