I have to be honest I struggled with this one, I’m not great with Copic backgrounds, that must be a video I haven’t seen yet! I came up with a technique that I’d seen over on Nichole Heady’s blog where you use your pens to create a gradient of colour by blending each ‘striped’ section with the next. I used this technique on the circle behind my little cupcake, hope you can make it out. I will definitely try it again another time, it would be fun to do in different colours, especially rainbow colours.
Here’s what Nicole did with hers …
My gorgeous little cupcake image is from Squigglefly, our sponsors this week. This image is called Cherry Cupcake Cutie! I love her little smiley face (because obviously she's a girl with all that pink around her lol)! Thank you Squigglefly, I had fun colouring her in and I'm sure she will be used again and again!
For my card I used the following colours;
Cake case: BG15, BG13, BG11
Cupcake: E31, E33, E34
Cherry: R59, R37 and used tip to tip method to blend the two colours
Background: RV29, RV25, RV23
I hope you give this technique a try, it’s really fun to do!
Check out the rest of the DT girls’ projects, they pulled this challenge off a whole lot better than I did!
