Copic Examples

My Copic Certification class was taught by the funny and very talented Sally Lynn MacDonald. Even though I had already taken two classes from a certified instructor, I learned so much from Sally Lynn. It was a great class!

Here are two samples, even though I haven't had time yet to make them into cards. These samples use only simple blending - no advanced techniques. The first is, of course, a House Mouse stamp. I used the following colors: for the mice on each end - C2, C4, R20, and B21. For the baby in the middle - W1, W3, B21 and R 20. For the grass - G21 and G24. For the yellow ribbon - Y02 and Y08. I did not write down my blue & red ribbon colors. Sorry about that.

The next sample is a Christmas Bell image from Sweet Impressions. I used B24, B26, R27, R29, C2, C4, C6. For the shadow around the bells I used C1 and the Colorless Blender 0.

I did get outside the lines in a couple of places, but I can blame that on a "dip in my macula". Don't ask. . . but trust me, you don't want it. It puts a little distortion right in the center of your vision.
