Copic Jumpstart Class


This is my first attempt at coloring with Copic markers.  Yikes! I am taking an online class, Copic Jumpstart,  that starts later this week. The teacher, Sandy Allnock, gave us a little pre-class assignment. She may tell me to quit after looking at this! LOL! I'm excited though to try something new. I've always wanted to learn how to color with Copics, so fingers crossed I learn a lot and get better. I'll keep you posted.

Enjoy your day and happy stamping!

Sponging On Embossed Images

 
There is an easy way to add color to an embossed image . . . sponging!  I dabbed a sponge on a Tim Holtz Distress ink pad and lightly stroked it over the embossed image. The sponge deposits the color in various intensities which  I think make it look more natural.
