I wanted to send a thank you card to my soul sister for a thoroughly awesome & unexpected gift and for helping talk me down off the ledge recently. Since she's a derby girl, and a large part of the reason I went for it, Roxy just seemed like the perfect choice.
Here's my colored imageRoxy out (go on, it's a live link) you'll see that my roller girl doesn't look the same. I'm starting to branch out a little bit and have begun "altering" an image once it's stamped to make it personal. Super easy to do, even if you can't draw a straight line. Just make sure you're drawing with a Copic Multiliner. You'll be able to color over it with your Copics with no issue.
I'll be creating a card to put Roxy on soon so she can get airborne to Utah. And if you're curious about the colors I choose, I wanted her to look like #57 Miss Business Das and mimic the colors for Wasatch Roller Derby.
And one additional item I colored last night. After my PVDT post, I grabbed a scrap of shrink plastic to try to make a wine charm. I sanded the shrink plastic and stamped the image using Memento ink. I didn't dry so I just set it aside on my desk and forgot about it. Last night it was plenty dry to color.
I used: V95, BV23, V99, RV69, YG93, YG95, YG99
The colors will deepen, darken and become more intense as the plastic shrinks. That meant the leaves were much darker than I liked. Easy solution. A little Colorless Blender on terry cloth dabbed onto the colored area lightened them right up. To make a set of wine charms I'd likely color each charm using a monochromatic color scheme with each charm being a specific color of the rainbow. Hmm. Maybe I've got an idea for some Christmas gifts this year.
One last image for you. I colored the grapes one more time. This time I changed up the leaves a little. Much happier with them. I used all of the same colors as the original I just changed what I colored with them. What do you think of the difference?
