Hi everyone! It is so good to be back I had a great time in Santa Fe but it is always good to get home. I returned to a week of 12 hours shifts. Yes, it is time for a week off and I plan to have a great time in my craft studio!
It is time for a challenge on Color Me Creative Classroom . The challenge is to create any Copic colored image that has a lot of "metallic" in it. It can be gold, tin, silver or copper. Doesn't that sound fun? Check it out and join in the fun!
I studied the tutorial on metallic that was done on this fabulous blog.... In Rosie's Book
I still need to practice, practice and practice... but this is the card I decided to create for this challenge - I hope Rosie likes it!
"Sunshine on Copper Vintage Milk Cans".
Technique: Metallic as demonstrated by Suzanne Dean in CMCC Class 3 #7
My personal challenge for the Day: I wanted to challenge myself to make the background feel like an extension of the image. I wanted to bring the rustic copper into the background - kind of an image within an image!

I also wanted to try coloring tin with the same digital image. Let's see how different it looks! I wanted the colors of the sky to reflect in the tin.
