Stay Classy and Sassy

Hello again! I'm back to share another card I made last night.  
I recently purchased several Kraftin' Kimmie stamps (mostly thanks to Nicole from Nicole's Craft Nook and her lovely creations using these stamps) and am in love with them! They are absolutely a joy to color with my copics.  Without further is my card using "Hey Hot Stuff".

   This card is going to a special friend of mine for her birthday.The image reminds me very much of her fabulous self.  I'm especially pleased with how the hair turned out this time.  I hope she will like it!

I have something else to share with you,  I've been taking an online hair and skin coloring class. 
I love to color with copic markers and felt it would be fun to hone my skills,
 so I signed up and joined the classes at Kit and Clowder.  
This is an 8 week course but you can do it at your own pace - thank goodness. 
I will probably need about double that time to get through it all with my more than full-time job.  
Anyway... I've already learned a ton and am really enjoying the progress I'm seeing in my coloring.  
Over the course of the next couple of months you will see my efforts too 
(the good and the not so good) - practice definitely helps :o).
If you like to color with alcohol markers and want to improve your skills, I would highly recommend this.
The cost is very reasonable (I've paid as much for a live 3 class session and learned a lot less),
the videos, instructions and homework materials are very helpful, and there 
are lots of additional learning opportunities with great digital images.
You can get to the Kit and Clowder site by clicking on the button on my blog side bar.  

This weekend Kit and Clowder will be doing a Live Colour Along tutorial using a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp called "Hannah Hearts".  I can't wait to colour her up and share it with you after the session.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Sentimental Sundays - Challenge #199 - Flowery Springtime (lots of flowers)
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Sketchy Free for All (I used sketch #88)

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today - I'm sure glad that you did! 
Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D
