One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Online copics Class Day 9 Backgrounds

Today's class was all about backgrounds...this seemed the easiest and one that I could not mess up!  ha!
After spending a looong time coloring and then stamping my sentiment, I made a big black mark from my acrylic block that somehow managed to get the edge into the ink!  GRRRRRR
I tried Jennifer's trick with scraping it away with my craft knife.
That did NOT work at all.
I managed to salvage it by adding three hearts instead of just one!
This is a digi from Saturated Canary...Eva!
Oh, one other little thing I did was put a little "O" refill onto a small piece of an old wash cloth and dab it onto the "slippers/uggs" that she has on her feet...I just thought that would give it the texture it needed !  Hard to see in the picture, I know!
Here is what I used:
hair:  YR31, Y38, E35 (sparingly)
face:  E00, E11, R20
eyes:  BG10, BG72
dress:  RV10, RV04, RV13, C1
Uggs:  E00, E31, E35, E37
Balloon:  BG10,BG13, BG18
background:  C1, C2
sentiment:  PTI Make a Wish
Wow, that is a list isn't it? 
Well, DH went to the Ducks game down in is a 7:30 game, so I have all night to color by myself without any interruptions!!
Heart Hugs, Friends!
