Copic Colouring


Just wanted to share this easel card I made. It was made during a recent Copics colouring class at Grimsby Crafts tutored by the lovely and very talented Kate.

I am not really into colouring images and not been very successful with alcohol pens, but eager to learn.  Can I just add that I'm not really into making cards either!

Anyway off I went to the class with the thought that maybe I will make my Christmas cards this year as I have been collecting a few Christmassy stamps that I would like to colour and use as toppers.

Well half way through the class I was losing my enthusiasm and thinking noooo this is not for me, I am not enjoying this and my colouring is looking awful!!! Just don't get how people find this relaxing and addictive!  I was getting more and more frustrated with myself.

Kate offered words of encouragement and, giving me tips, I carried on and persevered with 'the blending' to this result.......

'It's a Bag Thing'.....it was the shading of the background that was giving me all the trouble..... But then as it started to blend out I began to like it.
I came away from the class .... not only pleased with the coloured image but thought the card was pretty neat too.
I don't see myself getting addicted to colouring but will certainly have a go at some Christmas cards!!!
Thank you so much Kate for your patience and also a big thank you to Debbie who very kindly shared her Copics with me.
