Copic Card Class

So Jillian has wanted Copic markers since before she started her stamp company.  Due to the price I always resisted!  $7 markers for a 9 year old was a bit much!
But now that she is featuring images on some of her stamp sets, I decided I had better learn how to "color" again!

Melinda Gleissner from My Noteworthy Cards, is an instructor at our local scrapbook store, Scrapbook Art in Columbus Ohio.
This week she did a Basic Copic Class featuring Jillian stamps so I couldn't resist!

She designed all the cards shown!
Ok, now I am HOOKED!!!
I came home from class and ordered a BUNCH of Copics (LSS didn't have many left in stock!)
So first we learned how to flick our wrist, then jumped in to blending! What fun!!! I am not a patient person and thought that this wouldn't be for me, but once you see the personality developing, you get hooked!
She designed these cards as well as already had them stamped and ready to go, all we had to do was color and assemble them!  Awesome, informative class!

Please check out this link if you are in the area to take one of her wonderful classes!
