Steam Punk Copic Class

Good afternoon to you all 

today's class started off with a special treat from Janet just for me, she had been camped on the doorstep said Lynn, think she was excited to give me my little pre birthday treat :) and I can see why she wanted me to open it early to see my face, as it is fabulous, another steam punk card with amazing little boxes underneath all with a little something in for me.  Here it is
Isn't it gorgeous, I felt so very special
Thank you Janet :)

Now on to the card that we all created today using one of the Kanban images and some gorgeous papers too, all with a contrast of gold mirror card and a (Polly) special flower made with the largest paper shaper and star punch for the centre.
Such a relaxing class today, that we all finished well a head of time, allowing some extra shopping.

Lynn was busy looking at new stash for the shop, as were we all :)  and thank you to Lynn for her photography skills for taking today's photo of all the fabulous class attendees once we had all finished.

This was the last class of 2011, as the next copic class will be in Jan 2012

before I end this post I would just like to wish Tracy all the best for her special day and we all hope you enjoy every moment, and I for one cannot wait to see the Wedding photo's.

Thank you all

Copic Colouring Class 23rd October

Hi Ladies

thank you for a lovely class today, really enjoyed working with you all, and it was great to meet some new ladies too.

As promised we spent more time on the image colouring this time around and here is the card image so that you can continue your practising and finishing of your image for the card. (I will next time print off some of the photographs to make it easier in class)
This is the lovely Penguin image by Kanban available with other images and sentiments in the pack, available in the shop as are the  papers which are Me To You "Winter Wonderland" papers. Remember if your pearls are not the correct colour just use your copics to match them up.

Additional information promised
Rey Text and Graphic Paper (this is an on line order and delivered to you)

Here is the colour wheel, which will assist you in choosing your first purchases of copics. 

and here is the colour chart - remember this needs to be printed out onto the same paper you are using for your images on your cards, otherwise the colours will change. This will help you to avoid purchasing doubles too.
The next class is

20th November 2011 @ 1pm - 3.30pm

The card is available on show in the shop and Lynn has the colour list for you for your pen purchases.

As always if you have any questions on your copics please feel free to contact me here

Happy colouring

Christmas is a coming!

The two recent Christmas card making workshops were a great success. It was so funny to be creating cards for Christmas on two of the hottest days of the year!

We used lots of Crafty Individuals products

along side some traditional papers

added a few techniques here and there

and LOTS of distress inks

to create six cards....

In fact Christmas will be here before we know it.

Tilted Easel Card Class

Hello ladies

so sorry for the delay, total madness in our home at the moment, but never mind all of that

here is the card that the lovely ladies created on Sunday

With so much detail it was hard to create the full card in the class, so hoping these photo's help you to complete your cards
The copic colours used are the full cool greys and the full warm greys

for more details hop on over to my blog as I have written fully how it was created there.

The next class date is in Lynn's diary so hope you can all join us again

Will be making the next card for the class at the weekend, so this will be on show in the shop shortly

thank you all had a fabulous time

Hugs Kate
