On Sunday I was able to attend Intermediate Certification with Mandi-Lee our lovely Aussie Intermediate Copic Instructor ... along with some DT girls - Mel and Rach ! YAY!
There were some new techniques taught and I really do I wish I could do it all perfectly now but I can't so will spend lots of time trying to do better.. lol! It's what we have to do right?! PRACTICE!!!
So I thought I would share with you a card I've made where I have tried to incorporate some of the ideas from Sunday... I had it for yesterday but was not brave enought to post it (do you ever feel like that? lol) The image I've used is the gorgeous Lemonade Girl from Spesch stamps ... She sure is fun to colour... I have not recorded the colours here for you as there were lots... but the main thing I have done is use much more contrast than I normally would... and this also means that there is more of a "line" than I would like .. so that's something I still need to work through! I have tried to pay more attention to a light source for shadows and a cast shadow on the ground (also something that needs more thought/ planning)!
I do hope to be able to share some tips and techniques with you in the near future but first...
I need to practise myself
I need to work out the best way to share this with you via Internet/ blog etc :D
Thanks for stopping by.. Hope you have a colourful week!
