It's the last copic creations challenge of the year and oh man is this one a good one!
I know everyone is busy busy busy with holidays things, kids winter programs at school, card sending, present making, shopping, oh it goes on and on but i hope you take the time to check out the Copic Creations challenge. The prize is an ENTIRE set of Copic Spica Pens as well as some stamp goodies from this week's sponsor, Just Rite Stamps!
Just Rite generously donated some of their new holiday releases for the Copic Creations team to work with. I chose the Vintage Christmas Set. MAN, they are BIG! I had no idea until i get them in the mail but i was absolutely giddy when i saw them! A big bonus is that Just Rite is having a holiday sale and this set is only 12.71!
So while my original plan was to make a card using the way cool vintage santa image... as I looked at the pretty stamps with the separate border around them, i thought, this is PERFECT for an ornament! I like to make a few ornaments every year and this year I havent gotten around to it with all the ickies in our house so this was just perfect!!! This is what came up with! It's a double sided ornament... the center dangles on a piece of clear thread so that it spins. Kinda fun... veeeeeeery hard to get it to stay still for a picture! ahahahaha!
And now for some detail shots of each cause I know it's a little hard to catch in the above shots.
First let me say that the challenge this week with copics is to make things Sparkle! (hence why the Copic Spica Pens are part of the give away!). Ok, so the other challenge is to get all that sparkle photographed, but man does it look pretty in person! I totally heart my copic spica pens!
Here's a look at my snowman... I lined every thing with the copic spica pens (black for his hat, lipstick for the hat band and scarf, clear all over him... then i went a little nuts and spritzed him with some smooch spritz and well, thats pretty much all that photographed! but outlining every thing in spica pen turned out really pretty!
Here's a close up shot of Mr. Snowman, not angled at the light!
Here you can see the liquid pearls i used on the snowflakes and snow on his hat.
Colors Used: Boo, B000 and B000 for the snow man... a smidgen of C2 was used in areas of shadow. His hat and coal bits are C9, C7, C5, C3 and his hat band and scark are R59. R29 R24
And now for Mr. Clause... first the shimmer shot... basically the same MO as the snowman except instead of liquid pearl accents, i used silver stickles in his eye reflection to give that Santa Glint. His glasses were colored with a gold spica pen. And yes, i went smooch spritz crazy and i couldnt hold the ornament still to save my life so it's all a little blurry. Sorry.
And now for a better version...
Ok, this one is a little blurry too but that was a photography mistake. I'm still learning the ins and outs of my new camera. haha. Absolutely NON of the shimmer showed up here, but you can see the glint in his eye from the stickles! :D
