Happy Hump Day!!

I have been working on getting a Copic class together and it finally came together yesterday. I have been to the Hobby Lobby in Roswell several times to get this going and yesterday I spoke with the managers who okayed it so..... On August 27 at 10:00 am I will teach my first class, if I get enough students to make the class. I have several ladies here in Carlsbad who want to take the class so I have a head start on getting enough students. Woohooo!!!

I'm posting a card I completed Monday for:
Sketch and Stash -Sketch

This image is Uggabugga from Tiddly Inks. I love this, the local high school teams are the Cavemen and Cavegirls. I colored her on Cryogen cardstock with Copic markers.

I am working on coloring Grogg the caveman image now and will post as soon as possible. Uggabugga is colored with Copics. Skin E000, E00, E02, R20; hair E25, E29, E31; clothes YR14, YR15, YR16, E25 (spots); bone E43, E50. The cardstock is a mixture from my stash some is SU, CM and unknown. The patterned paper is older Bo Bunny Gone Wild Cheetah and Gone Wild Tiger. I used iRock gems in black and iridescent (on her left hand), Wild Orchid Crafts roses and rose leaves, Nestabilities Large and Small Standard Circles, swirls are a Magnolia die and she has a coating of platinum Stickles on her hair bone.

I colored her skin with different colors than I normally use. I have been having some issues with my cardstock glazing over so I am trying different things. I have even changed the nib on some of my markers and that seems to help the most. I wonder if using the SU Whisper White when I first got my Copics might be the problem.

Well, have a great rest of the week!

  3. Wowzers, friend! I love animal prints anyway but this is RIDICULOUSLY amazing! :) I am doing the same thing with skin colors myself, so you are inspiring me to try your combos too! I think some of my Copics may have been affected by using the wrong CS in the beginning, too. I will have to try new nibs! And BIG HUGE CONGRATS ON YOUR COPICS CLASS - WOOOO HOOOO! They have the best teacher in NM! :)
