No Line DVD Copic Class

Hello all,

I'm so happy to announce that I finished another Copic tutorial.    This DVD covers No Line Coloring.  I think this is a funny name because we need lines to color the image.  It is more a process of hiding the lines in our coloring.

This class is great for any Skill level.  Cost is $20.   Order by clicking here
You can see my other DVD classes here.

This tutorial covers these techniques:
How to stamp images to achieve no the no line look
Tips for coloring no line image
Coloring Dark to Light
Adding details back into image
Adding additional shadow to elephants head
Creating grass
Coloring rainbow bubbles
Fixing mistakes
Explanation of my process
Review of Hair

Review of Skin

Here are the copics I used to color both images colored in this tutorial.   You do not need to use these exact colors or images.  You can do this technique with any image and use your favorite colors.

I will be sharing my No Line Coloring Cards all next week!

Worth the Tassel


Tis the season for graduation parties.   My cousin is graduating from High School this year.  I'm so proud of her.  She is off to college in the fall.   We are all very proud of her.  She will do great things.

I colored this last year.  I ran out of time and never made it into a finished card. I made the boy version last year (click here).  I changed up a few details, but I copied the same design idea to make the girl version this year.   I love the heart border.

Congrats to all the 2017 Graduates!

Hello friends,

I have another kitty card today.  I think my dogs might go on strike!  There are just so many cute kitty stamps/dies being released right now.   I had a request from my students to make a card using felt.   This card was a lot of fun, but it was also a challenge.  We had a hard time finding glue that would hold the felt.   We will just have to play around until we find something that works.

No copics today--- I used a dye based marker to add color to nose and ears.  I could have used a copic too.
