Copic Class at the Glitterpot

Good afternoon everyone!

On Friday I had a lovely day at the Glitterpot teaching a workshop on using Copics on "Girl" stamps. It was a great assortment of wonderful ladies and I believe I had three sets of mothers with daughters in it!

I had chosen to work with a Gorjuss Girl stamp and one of Mo Manning stamps that Penny Black have brought out recently, love her stuff! 
So here are the cards I created for the workshop, as usual when I teach colouring I kept the layout simple.

Paper is Basic Grey "Kissing Booth - I do"and I used the following Copics:
R89, 85, 83, 81 (pinks)
E21, 00, 000, R02, 05 (skin)
E15, 13, Y21 (hair)
E74, 71, 70 (ground)
Y23, 17 (yellow on flowers)
N3,1,0 (greys/shadows)
G28, 24, 21(greenery)
and the blender as always...
Here is a detailed look:

Next I made another card with her, slightly altering the colours and giving her red hair instead of blonde.

Paper is by My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline "Howdy Doody Baby Chantilly" and I used these Copics:
E19, 07, 15, 13 YR07, Y21(hair)
Skin as before
Y23, 21 and a colour I mixed myself from 2/3 colourless blender and 1/3 Y21 (socks and yellow on dress and flowers)
W5, 3, 1 (ground)
N3, 1, 0 (grey/shadows)
YG17, 13, 11 (greenery)
R85, 83, 81 (heart pendant)
B000 (background)

For this next card I wanted a vintage-y feel but tried to liven it up a bit with the fresh turquoise green of the backing paper, which is MME Miss Caroline "Howdy Doody Like Wild Flower".

I used the following Copic colours:
E59, 57, 55, 53, 51, 50 (hair, horse body)
skin colours as before
E49, 47, 44, 43, 41 (horse mane, rocker, shoes)
E81, 43, 41 (dress)
Y23, 21 (shirt, hem, arm warmers and tights)
E19, 15, 13 (saddle and reigns)
N3, 1, 0 (grey/shadows)
W5, 1, Y21, E15 (background)

Last but not least another pink one...

Paper is Basic Grey "Kissing Booth - lip lock" and I used these Copics on her:
C9, 7, 5, 3, 1 (hair, shoes, mane, ground)
skin as before
R89, 85, 83, 81 (dress, leg and arm warmers)
N3, 1, 0 (horse body, shirt, hem and shadows/grey)
E47, 44, 43, 41 (rocker, saddle, reigns)
B000 (background)

And here a last detail look

Hope you like them!

Gorgeous, Alex! I love the darker shadow's on the face of Mo's image around her closed eyes. And your bouquet is delightful. As for your other two cards - well these are gorjuss too! Stunning colour work. You've made me want both images! Hugs, Lesley

Hach Alex, du hast so schön koloriert....
Ich liebe Copics und könnte sofort an den Basteltisch gehen. Ich glaube, das süße Mädel von MoManning sollte ich mir auch noch gönnen.

Lieben Gruß

Hi Alex
thank you for a FAB-U-LUS class on Friday, really enjoyed it (even though it was a BIT stressful on my journey to the Glitter Pot) lol, lovely group of ladies who also attended the class made it a very enjoyable experience. I have managed to finish two of my card's, the spotty background I need to practise more (may need to come to another class) lol.
