OCC Copics Day 4 Homework

Day4_1_edited-1Day4_2_edited-1

Hooray for a long weekend here in Canberra which gave me a chance to get up-to-date with my Online Card Classes Copics for Card Makers home work :). I really enjoyed colouring these flowers and particularly liked Kristina Werner’s flicking technique for adding some interest in the centre of the flowers (red/pink flower above).

Online Card Classes: Copic markers for card makers Day 1 Homework

CopicsDay1

Another fabulous class from the amazing girls at Online Card Classes. This is the fourth class I’ve taken with them and I’m loving it. Not only are the classes jam packed with ideas, techniques and tips, the homework for this class is such fun (and has got me back onto my blog, finally!). I don’t work on Fridays and so was able to catch up with Days 1-3 at last. Here’s my basic blending practice sheet.

Embossing Paste + Glitter

Glittersnow1

Here’s another card inspired by the Stencilled class – I used white embossing paste over a Crafters Workshop Garden Gate stencil and while the paste was still wet sprinkled dry Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles dry glitter over the top. It gives a lovely fine shimmer over the entire surface. Even though Christmas is over, and here in Australia we’re having a heatwave, I felt the panel needed a delicate finish so I used a Memory Box snowflake die to cut a snowflake from white card and also from vellum. I spritzed the white snowflake with Mister Huey Seafoam and Calico Shine spray and held the white and vellum pieces together with glue dots and an old Stampin Up silver brad from my stash. I stamped the sentiment from WPlus9’s Woodland Wreaths onto vellum and heat embossed it in white.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Stencilled class and am already looking forward to Online Card Classes’ next offering!

Stencilled Day 3

DoilyFlowers1

So glad the weekend is here and I finally have time to catch up on my Stencilled class homework :). I absolutely loved the card Shari Carroll demonstrated using translucent embossing paste and distress inks. Here’s my CASE of the card, altered slightly by mounting the panel on black card and adding a panel with the sentiment and some flowers. I love the batik-look this stencil and inking produces and would love to try it out with some green and blue distress inks. Here’s a close up:
