This is a standup card with a twist that I gave my DH today as part of his anniversary gift. I got a beautiful smile as well as a fab gift of jewelry!! I colored the little guy in the boat awhile back so I can't tell you for sure which copics I used, but here are what I can recall for the rest of the card. The deep blue water is designer paper - wish I could color so good!!
E50,51,53,57, 00,11,02, 49,31,33,35,37,29,21; Y02, 15,17; YG67: G14,17: W1,3: C1,3,5,7, YR68, 61, B0000,93,95,97,23,24,60,32; R20,22,27. Here is the shed:
I used a lot of stickles as you all know I love sparkle! I used distress stickle on the gold fish mounted on the shed. Lime green stickles in the flower boxes and also flower soft. I always color first as I am never sure what I would like before I do. I did the pail after coloring - I kind of pat the stickles to eliminate any dimension from the stickles. Some places, like the bear's eyes and nose (black stickles) are done to look like beads. You can look and see all the rest of the stickles. Here is how I did the boat.
I cut an "L" tab from heavier cardstock and glued DP to the back of the part that was to be glued to the base (which I covered with DP first). I glued the other end of the tab to the back of the boat at the end which protruded the farthest down. I had to cut the shape so it wouldn't show from the front. I use scor-tape when I want to be sure my glue job will last forever. I know I am just taking someone's word for it, but I can never undo it, so I feel more confident. As forever goes, I haven't lived long enough to say it and mean it!!
See all that neat shading under the dock? Well, it was the result of a horrific accident! One of my copics dropped out of my hand and whoops ! I had a dark brown streak over my nice water which was slightly shaded. So I grabbed up all my lighter copics that were just laying there - they were all capped like usual. The one I dropped, well, I was using it for some touches somewhere. So now I know, you can't get that deep dark of copic completely out and I went with what a real shadow might look like colorwise under a real dock and this is what I came up with. But I really want to thank Suzanne Dean!!!! She said you could remove more than normal amounts of dark inks if you tried using the blender and had a softer pad underneath. I used my padded lap desk and wow! I didn't have anywhere near as much ink to contend with!! Since it took me hours to get this card stamped so I could color it, I first had to calm myself down from having a heart attack!! And I might say, my entire card was basically colored at that point - I was just fine tuning which I can't usually do until everything is colored! Hope you enjoy it as much as my Darling did!! Hugs, Barb F PS, I won't be too productive online as I have lots going on in my life right now.
