Welcome! I'm home from Texas, and today I have a birthday card to share. Lately I've been working on adding examples of colored metals to my Copic Workshops portfolio;. When I saw this Power Poppy bucket of Lavender image, I knew that it was a perfect little image to experiment with in practicing coloring metallic surfaces.
These are the Copic markers that I used to color the Lavender image. For the bucket, I started just to the left of center with a clean-edged stripe of W7, then added a small stripe of W5 to the left of that one. Next I came in from the right and worked a quick gradation, running from W7 on the far right, to W5 to W3 to W1 to 0 as I proceeded toward the center of the bucket, leaving a strip of white paper at the edge of the W1/0 area so that I wouldn't soften the W7 edge that was on the left side of the bucket. It's a super-simple way to create instant shine!
I used the Spellbinders Regal Frame die template set to cut my focal image and its silver mat layer. I then used a silver paint pen to edge the layer on which my focal image was stamped and colored. The metallic silver string is from my old Stampin' Up stash--one day I'm gong to run out of that roll and need more! My finished card is 5" x 7". Now I need to play with a few more metallic color schemes on that bucket image. . . ;-)
