Furry Little Friend

As you know, I am taking classes on Copic markers from Suzanne Dean. She is now offering classes for Distress Ink. Now, doesn't that sound fun? Yes, of course I had to sign up for the class! LOL.

As with anything new.... one must practice. This is my first attempt at using distress ink. I tried to make the little bear look furry. I was a little worried about my paper. We are to use smooth watercolor paper. My watercolor paper has quite a grain to it. I tried to use it to my benefit and make it look like fur.

The little image is from Penny Johnson/Sampavie and the name is "Bear with Butterfly"

I have quite a bit of practice ahead of me in order to perfect this technique but I will have fun along the way. Suzanne will also be having a class on Prismacolor pencils soon. Yes, I will be one of the first to sign up! LOL
