I just discovered a new technique for my Copic markers and I'm so excited!! I have lots of this irridescent gold vellum that I found in packages at my local Big Lots store about a year ago. I haven't used much of it because I'm not a huge vellum fan... but when you find something at a great price you NEED to buy it. Know what I mean?
My new technique is to emboss the vellum on one side then color on the other with copic markers. In this case I used gold embossing powder for the flower petals. The back sides of the petals were colored in streaks with three shades of blue marker. I love how subtle the marker is when showing through - just hints of color even though I used some pretty deep shades! Plus when you combine it with the gold ep it gives is such a pretty effect.
The card base is from The Paper Cut. It comes scalloped so you don't have to mess around with making them yourself. I added gold leaf pen to the outside edges because there just wasn't enough gold on the card yet... lol. I might go back and change the ribbons, but since I'm already late for work that'll have to wait for later. Oh... almost forgot! The light green ribbon was originally white and I colored it a matching green to the stems with my copic marker... what an easy way to always have the "right" shade of ribbon!
Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think!
