So Blue......

Today I wanted to share a card that I decided to make after going to my Copic Certification course in Wisconsin. I learned SOOOO much that day. It was going to be a long day... or so I thought... 9 AM to 4 PM. But, it was so interesting and so FULL of information that time just flew by! One of the first things they taught us was using the "grass" technique as Sally called it. Pushing down with your copic and whisking up and away. Creating sort of "grass" if you will. It was fun and a great way to show how you could add shading and depth to your picture. Well, needless to say... she gave us a frog to practice on. Now I laughed when I realized the sample Copics I had were teal. But... I started coloring in this little toad and I tell ya... I fell in love with him! LOL Now I can't tell you what stamp company he is from, for she never told us. But I do know.. I LIKE HIM! AND... I decided he needed to really glow with those eyes! LOL Not only did she show us the "grass" technique, which is you look at the lower portion of his belly, legs, you can see he IS darker and that's where it starts, but she also showed us how the Blender Pen can make those spots just right for such an animal. I just think he's adorable. And, I gotta say... he kinda looks like a poisonous frog, dontcha think??? LOL No wonder he's so lonely and blue. Who'd WANT to be with him???!! LOL Oh I crack me up! I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder to give my card front a bumpy look 'cause it IS a toad card! And I thought the dotted ribbon went well with his dotted tummy. I wonder... hmmmm... WHO will end up getting my poisonous toad some day??? Hee Hee Hee
Have a great day and don't touch poisonous toads!!!! *smile* Signature
