Hi , it is spring and therefor also time of lots of celebrations
as christenings, confirmations, weddings etc.
This is my non traditional confirmation card.
I have prepared it for the COPIC ITALY blog.
The confirmation is a special occassion
but the card does not have to be too serious ,
a lot of people love to see more "young people / fun " cards.
Anyway this image is suitable according to me ,
because she has these lovely innocent big eyes.
This My Bestie digi from Sherri Baldy is called Daffodila, img 660
To colour the image up I have used my new gray copic sketch markers of the T group.
You might know copic has 4 gray groups.
The W ( warm gray )
The C ( cool gray )
The T ( toner gray )
The N ( neutral gray )

Last wednesday I had my second ECCP class ( advanced level )
with my talented pupils, Sabrina, Camilla, Sabrina , Stefania and Raffaella .
It is great to share the "secrets and tips " how to use the copic markers.
In this class we had a closer look how to colour
different styles of hair, different colours of skin , shadows around images
and shadows in general .
But it is also a great oppertunity to share an afternoon with creative people,
you can always learn from eachother, and have a laugh !
The class was held at Canzonetti , L'arte in vetrina, the hobbyshop of Albano ( near Rome ).
At the end all students received their "diploma" ,
the prove that they have attended the official
European Copic Colouring Program
In may we will do the special I class..as soon as the date is fixed I will let you know.
In this class we will do folds, distress colouring with copics,
confetti shadow and the feathering technique .
