Copic Coloring the Look of Glitter:Rainbow Cupcakes

 Hello Crafters! 

Ever lose your mojo?
Yep, me too. 

I know I've told you before but sometimes it's good to be reminded of ways to break free from that creative block. I go back to what I love. 
One Layer, coloring, rainbows. 

Tada!
The card I shared over on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog


I started by stamping and masking my cupcakes so I had two rows. I had a bit of a stamping boo on my yellow cupcake where the lines partially double stamped. The glitter technique covered that boo boo right up! 


I masked all of the cupcakes and the bottom portion of my card to do some ink blending. I laid down a rainbow of distress oxides above the cupcakes very lightly. I put my fluttering heart stencil in place and added another layer of each color to create a tone on tone look. 


I chose distress oxides so that the bold copic coloring would have a clear separation from the background since I was going to color each cupcake was the same color as it's background. With the masks still in place I spattered on some perfect pearls to add some shine to the background. I removed the masks and got coloring! 


I used four color blends ( You can see all my favorite color combinations over on my copic color recommendations page) for each cupcake coloring the icing the same as the wrapping. Adding the shading before applying the glitter technique is super important so you still get that dimension. 


In order to achieve the glitter effect I used all four colors and made a series of small dots all over the cupcake wrapper. Small dots are important because we are trying to create that illusion of shimmering. The white gel pen brings it all together. By adding the white gel pen it makes the highlights that would be reflected by the light. 

You can see the entire process in the video below. 


Thanks so much for dropping in! 
I hope to be back soon!
