Hi everyone, hope your weekend was good! I had a lovely day yesterday teaching a copic class at the Craft Barn, hello to all the lovely ladies I met, thank you for making it a great day for me and I hope you enjoyed it too.
One of the techniques we looked at was copic marker direct to a solid stamp which gives a lovely watercolour effect. I saw this technique somewhere in blogland originally but it's one I didn't save unfortunately and I can't remember which blog, thank you anyway for sharing. I'm entering this into the Stamp Something challenge which this time is bling it somethings.
For the star I used the Kadoodle Star from the Joi de noel set and I coloured it with three different blue copic markers to cover the whole of the stamp, when I finished colouring I misted it with blending solution until if was quite wet and then stamped it onto some white textured card. The image is cut out and then edged with a gold metallic pen and raised up on foam dots over the two cut out stars also edged with gold. I've joined the two stars together with an eyelet threaded with gold raffia and it's about 4.5 inches so, big enough to be a card but I might also use this as a tag. To finish I coloured all the white areas of the stamped star with a copic clear spica glitter gel pen for some bling and added the little gold bow.
