For the first card, I stamped the main image with Brilliance Graphite ink onto Shimmery White cardstock, then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers. This type of beautifully detailed image is just a blast to color with the Copics, you can get all those tiny wicker/wood color variations on the basket. I restamped a second image and colored in the bobbers, fish, basket lid & reel. I cut those out and placed them on the main image with dimensionals. Here's a little closer look at the basket image ~
I used the Prismatics Cardstock for the first 2 cards...these are the colors Kelley gave us this month for our DT color challenge. The first card is my official Color Challenge Card, and the second card is all Prismatics too, except for the SU Naturals Ivory cardstock (love that stuff!). The Prismatic cardstock is really cool. It has a unique finish...it's textured on one side, you can see a little bit of that in the photos...and smooth on the other side. Beautiful, rich colors! You can see all those colors (there are 113 custom colors) ... right HERE! This next card shows off the little fish lure stamp. I stamped it above the scripture 3 times then colored them in with Copics, Shimmered 'em up with my Spica clear glitter pen and made 'em shine with a Sakura clear glaze pen! The photo really doesn't do this card justice...it's really kind of a cool little card irl...lots of texture and color! I used almost every bit of my Prismatics cardstock, except for a few very small scraps (which I saved, of course), so I dug into my vast supply of SU cardstock. It's great stuff too. I have no idea why I reached for these colors, but I did, and was surprised to find that I really liked how they look together... Really Rust, Naturals Ivory and Not Quite Navy. They totally remind me of a little fishing cabin...wih checkered rust and navy curtains and couch...a little retro blast from the 50's! Anywhoo, I stamped the 2 lures onto the Naturals Ivory (reminded me of retro wallpaper)...then Stamped the Scripture and layerd things up & added a jumbo pewter eyelet, for a quick bookmark. Using those same colors and stamps, I made a coordinating card ~
