Night School!

Last night I took a copic card coloring class at my lss.  I happened to have the two stamps that the cards were being made with and so I thought it would be fun to go and color with other ladies and get some ideas other than my own on coloring these stamps.  I have never really done one of these classes before as the store is a drive into another town and usually the classes are at night when my family is home. But, this was a lot of fun to try.  The woman who ran the class, Tracy, is super nice and friendly and just one of those people who makes me feel welcome whenever I see her.  So, the two cards you see are completely Tracy's design and  color choices. She had the two cards all pre cut and and stamped and all we had to do was follow the coloring instructions from her pre - made samples.....so, I just went and "followed" directions!  And had a complimentary cookie.  How much better does life get than that?  Free cookies and a night of coloring!  Both stamps are Northwoods Rubber Stamp Co.  I think I will try changing up these color schemes somewhat when I do them on my own.  I would like to make the eggs all one color and the basket with a bit of color in it and I would like to do the tulips in several colors and the bunnies brown.  Save it for another day!  Here are the cards:



Thanks for the visit!  I hope that spring is coming to your area....it certainly is to southeastern Wisconsin and for that I am thankful!  

Be well,
Sheila

I'm so glad you went and enjoyed it, Sheila! Both cards are so soft and pretty! Can't wait to see them with your own, more vibrant style! :)

What a fun night, Sheila. I know how you feel about leaving the family in the evening (I try not to), but it is good to try new things once in awhile. These are great cards with lovely coloring, but you have done so well on your own. Hope you learned some new techniques - look forward to seeing more of your own gems. Thanks for sharing.

So glad you were able to take a Copics class, Sheila! Northwoods have so many beautiful stamps that are perfect for those of us who love to color. I am sure your color choices for these will be even more lovely!!

Hi Sheila, I love the cards you did in the class. I bet you had a wonderful time. I think doing classes is a great way to learn or try something you normally wouldn't do. You are so lucky xoxoxoxo

Wish I could have been in class with you--I really need to learn to color with my COPICS! Love both your cards, Sheila!

Beautifully coloured Sheila! But then again you were a world class colorer before the class!

I'd love to take a coloring class for Copics! I could use some help! Still looking for one online or otherwise....the purple flowers on the top card really drew me in- so pretty!
