Teaching....Copic Techniques II and My Pink Stamper Stamp Set Winner

Last Thursday I taught a class at Creative Cuts and Crafts. It is a continuation of the class I taught last month on Copic Techniques. These classes take awhile to get together.....research, more research, practice and more practice :) Here are the projects for today.
I'm teaching some new techniques with this one....flooding background, pebbles, velvet/suede look, tip to tip, blending colors in different families, scales and swirling.
When I teach these classes it is totally about technique and the design of the card is not important to me at all. We do however, like to be able to have the student go home with a finished product so I supply them with some simple cuts to accomplish this. Most of the class time is spent practicing the techniques and not even touching the "original" until the very end.

Sorry to keep you waiting....the winner of the
Even More Punny-licious Stamp Set is:

Congratulations Stacey! 
I will be emailing you for your address.
