Hi, Today is the first of Scrappy-Go-Lucky's new fortnightly challenge - "Whip It Up Wednesday". For each challenge, held on the first and third Wednesday of each month, you will need to Whip Something Up to meet the criteria of the challenge.
The first challenge: Use colouring in some way to enhance your cricut cuts. Click HERE for all the details.
I enjoy using all the "toys" in my craft room, and try to use a number of them together on projects. Therefore, incorporating my Copics with my Cricut was fun. I decided to try a card using just the base or shadow cut of an image, then colouring with Copics to see what effects could be achieved. This is what I came up with.
This beautiful flower is from "Rock Princess". As you can see below, I cut only the base image (sized at 3 1/2"). I've left the guide cuts to serve as reference points when colouring.
Below is the first layer of colouring. I've used R32 to colour the flower area first.
I've then used R35 / R37 / R59 to bring depth of colour and dimension into the flower. The blender pen is a must-have when using Copics. It literally pushes the ink away. I've used it here to create the dots in the centre to represent the stamens. The leaves are coloured using G17 / G28.
Shimmer paint has been swiped very lightly over the flower, with sections then highlighted with Glaze pens and glitter. I also added a couple of extra leaves around the edge.
Below is the same rose put together with the different layers as normal. I've inked around the edges and added some glitter.
Congratulations to all the winners of the Scrappy-Go-Lucky Blog Hop.
Till next time,
