Colouring class at Crafts-u-Love

I recently attended a Copic colouring class at Crafts-u-Love run by the lovely Alex on Skin tones.

These are the cards we made:
I adjusted some to suit the cards I had a home to finish them -
this one is by Craftwork Cards and has a fancy edge which I folded back, punched and tied with a ribbon.

I covered the front with some paper from my stash and added a strip on the exposed edge too.
Sizzlet architectural corners were added too. As I didn't have the same dies used by Alex, I used my own and added a purple mount.

The stamps are from a set by Penny Black and I think this one is my favourite.
Again I used my own dies to cut and frame this one.
The card was covered with paper from my collection and the edge punched with a large Martha Stewart design. The white is a Stampin' Up embossing folder.

I added a contrast trim inside the edge too which reflects through the punched edge.

This one is pretty much the same as Alex's although I used a different shape die and added a bow of different ribbon.

I'm liking the message die used here and may have to invest on my next visit.

In the afternoon, we made the one below using another new Penny Black cling stamp and the message from the same die set. This one is as per Alex's original apart from the ribbon trim colour.

We paper pieced the dress, socks, shoes and bow on the basket.

Below are the cards (and image) that Alex made. 

I've not completed the last one yet but she's so cute!

Thanks Crafts-u-Love and Alex for a fab day - looking forward to the next one!
