Hello everyone and WELCOME to the first official month of the COPIC CLUB!!!¬† Don’t know what that is???? Go here….NOW!! ūüôā¬† You won’t want to miss out on this screamin’ deal!!!!¬† Here are my creations for the month.¬† I focussed on grounding this month.¬† The first card, I just grounded my image with a grey outline (I don’t have the pen in my bucket¬† below, but I believe I used W3 or W1 – either will work).¬† You may have to click on the picture to make it larger as it is a little hard to see the detailed outline!

For the second image, I grounded by shading in W5, W3, and W1 – I worked the darkest color closest to the image and worked my way out.¬† Then I went over it ALL with my blender pen to really get that smudged, worn in look.¬† Sometimes you won’t want to blend it so well and leave a darker outline – it all depends what look you’re going for.¬† We’ll have more on this technique in the weeks to come.

…and a close up of the image….

For my third card, I just cut around my image.¬† I did ground her a little on the bottom just so she wouldn’t look like she was standing in mid air.¬† Otherwise, I just mounted her on my card!

My challenge this month – as we are just getting started….was to have participants show me some blending.¬† Just simple stuff – light to dark using as many colors as you want – even ONE.¬† In the first picture, I used three colors YG01, YG03 and YG05.¬†

and in the second photo I used just one color РB23.  I also used a teensy tiny bit of the blender pen on the really light areas. 

My copic “TIP” for the month of April seemed to be known by EVERYONE but me…..but I had no idea.¬† As I’m sure you know – there are two ends to a copic sketch marker – the chisel tip and the brush tip.¬† I am FOREVER pulling the wrong end off instead of the one I desire.¬† Well, did you know….there is a grey circular RING around the brush end of the marker!!!¬† This sure makes picking the right end easier!!¬† It has certainly helped me anyway!! Tee hee!!!

With the start of a new Design Team term, we’ve decided to make a change to our usually Guest DT contest. Now instead of winning a guest design team spot, you’ll have the chance to win a FREE RIBBON KIT from the current months kits!! Contests close on the 28th of each month at which point the DT will have a private vote and a winner will be selected. A kit will be randomly chosen from the current months kit releases for to recieve FREE!!
We hope this change will encourage those who are to shy to be a guest designer to participate. After all, who wouldn’t want to receive a FREE RIBBON KIT????¬†

You can check out all the details here: MONTHLY CONTEST RULES




When I think of a contest or a race, a checkered flag often comes to mind… SO…. for this months contest I want to see CHECKERS on your layout!!You can use a checkered pattern in anyway you like; the patterned paper, the title letters, maybe some checkered doodling or even portray a checkered patterned in your layout design itself! It’s up to you! I also would like to see a min. of one tied ribbon or lace on your layout as well.

(Entries must be received in the gallery and linked to the challenge¬†post no later then July 28th, and don’t forget to follow contest rules as posted previously.)

For all the July Contest Details, please check out the post in the Forum. {July} Ribbon Kit Contest
