Copic Coloring: Mani Thanks card


Copic Coloring: Mani Thanks card

The cards I make with shiny glass get lots of attention – and I do so wish I had some way to provide a scientific approach to making glass look glassy. “A stroke of this here, that there….and done!” But glass—and anything shiny—-take on the light and reflections around them, so they’re always different! If you want something specific, my recommendation is Googling a similar image, and doing that a lot til you get the “hang” of making it up yourself the way I do. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The embossing is on top of the Copic coloring – to try to color over embossing can ruin nibs.

  1. Love this!

  2. My favourite colour is purple so I was so pleased to see you were using this colour to create the nail polish bottle with Sandy. I like the TOP TIP about leaving the outline of the banner until right till the end and then outlining it with a thin black pen. Love this card a lot Sandy thank you for sharing it with us crafters. :O)

  3. Great realistic glass look on my favourite colour of nail polish. Have watched a lot of your glass object videos & although my brain is getting the idea my hand is yet to catch up x

  11. Good ideas here on how to get the shine on! Reflections are always going to be a challenge, but this will help. Love the purples, which I don’t use nearly enough – but I could become a fan! Thanks!
