For The Mid-October Halloween Hump!
Good Morning from Phoenix AZ! Today is day 1 of Jen Dove’s October 2019 Copic Boot Camp. Four days packed with Copic instruction. I am so excited that this year SEVEN of my friends are here with me! Let me tell you, after coloring this Witch (took me 8 tries!) I need some Boot Camp. Honestly though, I am ready for a refresher and hopefully I have not developed any bad Copic habits that Jen will need to break me of!
I have another Stamping Bella Oddball for you. Hey, if you have been to this page before you were warned of my obsession, if not…..ENJOY!
These spiders were cut from black card stock that had been heat embossed with clear embossing powder. When I cut them the embossing lifted a bit but I liked the effect. I also added a black rhinestone to the body and black metallic thread behind it for a cobweb look.
I am still struggling with pleats and folds. (Told you I needed more Boot Camp) I shaded my dress without the pleats in Copic then went back with the Prismacolor pencil and added them in. I nailed the sleeve. Next time (yes, I will color her again) I will turn the paper and do the dress body pleats sideways, like the sleeve.
