More Metal ---

As with most challenges, I think to myself  "ok, that's simple enough. I'll give it a go."  Then I realize that it's never that simple for me.  The more I use Copics, the more I see that I like to add shading and depth to my images so I'll try to get better and better at it. 

Here's what I made for the 'metal' challenge.  I didn't have any of the cool grays so I had to opt for gold -- I have a few yellows. I used Y04, Y08, Y17, and Y26 for my 'gold' stars.  To enhance the 'gold' a bit, I used a large background stamp and Gold Brillance ink. 

Thanks for the challenge Shannon!

Metal Challenge from Shannon

Copic Junkie Design Team member Shannon Pankow posted the challenge this week to color something metal. I have few stamps that fell in the metal category... but found this watering can with flowers by See Dee's. For the metal coloring I used: C3, C0, N7, E19 and blender pen... for the shadowing I used a BV31 and C0.
