Happy Easter.

Happy EAster card to share with you today, Open-mouthed smile
i have used a digi image for this card from Sassy Cheryls © Papers are Tim Hotz vintage shabby.
The Easter has been cut using quickutz cookie dies, and the rabbit is also from a quickutz die.. the leaf die is a doohicky , flowers are from wild orchid crafts ,
i used a Martha Stewart punch to make the band that the easter sentiment is adhered to.. i made this band kinda raise from the card.. if you get what i mean.. Confused smile
not to sure where i was actually going when i made this card .. lol..
wow that is big.. rofl you can see all my mistakes now.. hehe.. I have been asked by a few people if i do classes, if i have had any copic training, via classes etc.. I thought that i would answer here and  the answer is no,  i have not attended any copic classes, art classes etc…I am so much of a chicken it is scary.. all my colouring has been self taught. and i still have a lot to learn..  I don’t hold classes i would be a bumbling mess if i did..For me  it is just a case of practice,.... work out where you want your light source to come from and go from there.. work out what works best for you as whether you prefer to start with your darkest colours first or if you would rather start with your lightest colours first.. there is no right and wrong way.. it is what suits you best.. i colour with the lightest first through to the darkest colour, then i even go back in again for depth.. and then finish off with pencils if need be..  that is all i do.. and seriously if i can do it any one can do it.  Smile  but most of all, just have fun..

the colours that i used to colour this image are
skin. E00-E-1E11-E13-R20
HAIR. E51-E71-E35-E25-E29
Thank you for dropping by hugs rach.xx

Unbeilvable card, your colors just love love it. Im a new follower. How do you take your pictures i find it hard to get the colors to look vivid. I've tried scanning, in the window, using natural light, i just can't seem to get the picture to show the true colors as yours does. If you have any tips i would sure appreciate it. thanks for your time. kimbob27 at hotmail dot com
