Glassy Card

HIYA! Wanda signing in with my weekly post for the iCopic Blog! I colored this image quite a while ago and it is one that I use as an example in my Copic classes. I finally turned it into a card! A shabby, vintagey card! I think it nicely illustrates a different way to use your Copic Markers to achieve a soft, glassy feel.


Here are the colors that I used - you can see I used very light shades in four different color families. When coloring, I left a lot of white space in the center of the bottles. I did this so that the images would appear see through, just like glass. I used my colorless blender pen extensively to push the color out the back of the paper (see pic below) so that just a very small amount of color was left.

Here is the back side of my image. See that there is more color on the back than on the front!? That is because I kept using my blender pen over and over until I got the effect I wanted.
 Here is a close up of the coloring of the bottles...

I hope you will give this new technique a try with your markers! Have a wonderful week...until I see you again!


Wow, I have never tried this technique, but believe me I will now. I have the PTI jar stamp that would be perfect. I love learning and trying new techniques. Thanks! BTW, your jars are lovely on the card. LC

WOW! This is so beautiful...thanks for sharing!

Hey Wanda- What stamp set is that? I love the card and it is a great set to teach the technique on. :)
