Workshop - Promarkers & Copics

What better way to spend a Wednesday than meeting friends and 'colouring in'.
Our theme for this weeks workshop was Alcohol Markers and I choose to use Promarker and Copic pens. Our first project was to colour this lovely Molly Bloom stamped image and add shading and texture by using a variety of techniques. Memento Ink was used, as this is the ink of choice when stamping and using Alcohol Markers.
Our second stamped image was a beautiful Rose Stamp from Hobby Art, ideal for colouring with Promarkers. These were also used around the edge of the mount to create a 'faux matt and layer' (saving time and paper). The ribbon was originally white and was coloured using Promarkers and is a way of everything matching beautifully. Glossy Accents was used to look like droplets of rain on the petals, to give a realistic effect.
This is one of the sample cards which I took as an example to show the ladies how it is easier to choose the background paper first and the colour accordingly. This really does save time!
Once again, a wonderful time was had by all, with plenty of friendly banter, crafty hints and an award given for the best homework. Well done Sue!
