For this post, though, I wanted to show you a card that I created for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog. This week the challenge was to create a card with a "transport it" theme. Here is the card I made.
I used the "Enjoy the Ride" stamp set by Paper Trey Ink to stamp and die cut the car. I then practiced my Copic coloring for the class I am taking at Online Card Class site. So far I am learning some fabulous techniques. Some I am afraid to do, though, and have not practiced yet. One is creating backgrounds with Copic markers. I am just understanding blending groups, let alone creating a background with them!! This has been a fabulous class so far and I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to learn how to use these markers.
After I colored the car, I layered it over some die cuts that were cut from scraps. I used foam adhesive to give the car a bit of dimension.
I also put a layer of glossy accents on the window, as well as some yellow Stickles on the headlights to give the car a little oomph. My last step was to go over the entire card with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.
In other news, I thought I would share my Copic class practice sheet I colored for my white and red shading homework.
I did not use the red technique for my car, which I should have. I LOVE how that flower came out, though, don't you? The flower that I like the most for shading "white" is the fourth one. I did not put the colors I used in there for some reason but it was the lighter of the C's. I also used an extremely light touch. For once I did not go out of the lines!! I think I am finally getting used to the paper I copied the images on. It is different then what I usually use.
Again, I am entering the card above into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
That is all for now. I will be posting again a little later with some other cards I created for World Card Making Day!! Thank you for stopping by!!
