Time for the Bubbly Two-fer
This card is inspired by this week's OCC Challenge - "It's All in the Coloring", and the Splitcoast Sketch SC200. I really wanted to try using Copics, though I have no idea what I am doing... I used one of my favorite MFT sets - "Time for the Bubbly". The card base is Kiwi Kiss topped with a layer of black card stock, topped with a layer of Haiku DSP. I stamped the main image on white card stock with black Stazon ink and colored with Copics. I paper pieced the "wallpaper" with Haiku DSP. I stamped the image again on white card stock and colored the border of the mirror with my silver Zig Painty. It's nice and shiny "in person". I cut it out and then used Soft Sage shadow ink by Memories and a blender pen to color the mirror to make it look like the reflection of the wallpaper in the mirror. I stamped a little flower from Eastern Blooms on the mirror to emulate the wallpaper design in the reflection. I used my square Nestabilities to cut the three white squares with black borders. I stamped the images of the bubble bath, wine glass and wine bottle with black Stazon and colored the with Copics. I used my Color Spritzer Tool to spray a little black on the white squares for texture, then adhered the colored images on them and mounted them with Dimensionals. The sentiment is in black Stazon on white card stock edged with black ink. A piece of Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon is inserted into an eyelet and tied in a knot. I've got a ways to go with Copics, but I have to say, I am pleased with this one. Thanks for looking!
