Hi guys!! This was an interesting challenge for me this week. The theme at Always Fun Challenges is Travel and at first I was going to make a masculine card with my Stampin Up Traveler stamp set, but then I remembered I had this super cute image by Stamping Bella called Squidgy on a Journey that I’ve never even inked up yet, and well, I just had to put her to work instead.
I recently signed up for the Kit & Clowder monthly coloring class for both alcohol markers and colored pencils so I put my new skills to the test. You can see the sunset background class is what I practiced on this card. I am loving these classes!! So much information and Alyce is a really great instructor. If you’re wanting to improve your coloring techniques or interested in learning how to color like a pro, I highly recommend taking a class or two from Kit and Clowder. Or sign up for the monthly classes like I did. They even have a couple of free classes that are packed full of really great information. That’s what got me hooked!! I thought I was pretty good at Copic coloring until I took this class. This is only my 2nd month of the subscription but I have nothing but praise so far. I’m not 100% happy with this background, but for my first time practicing it, I’m ok with it. If you do sign up for a class, let them know that I sent you. You get a little thank you for referring a friend.
I used TONS of Copic markers which I will add to this post as soon as I can. The boy’s had all last week off of school so I’m trying to get everything ready tonight. We went dirt bike riding all day on Sunday so I didn’t get my laundry or shopping done until 10pm!! Needless to say, I was a walking zombie. Dirt bike riding is exhausting!! But oh so much fun. I didn’t do a video this week because as you can see, all I did was color for this card. I did actually record one, but even sped up, the video was like 2 hours long… of just coloring so I decided to skip a video this week. But I’ll be back with one next week!!
