Copics & Copper

Sticking with the Basic Black and Copper theme...Here is another image from SU!'s Bloomin' Beautiful set (now retired from the last Mini, but I am still hoping it shows up in the Fall/Winter catty.)
This is another image where I have been playing with layering on a lighter copic color, in this case YR00 to create a darker color. I used YR18 to color along the shadow lines in teh image. Then lots more YR00 to blend everything together. For the stem - I did one layer of YG67 on the stem, then several layers of color on the leaves. With the Colorless Blender 00, I removed a little color just from teh center of the leaves to give them some depth.
My goal for this design was to really have the flower POP and be 95% of what the eye sees. But using just the Basic Black left me cold instead of warm! lol Thus the warm accents of SU! Brushed Copper Metallic cardstock, a little frayed at the ends Copper Cord (SU! retired) and Copper Embossing Powder.
Stamps: Bloomin' Beautiful and Hugs & Wishes (both SU!)
Cardstock: SU! Basic Black & Brushed Copper Metallic; Papertrey SS White
Copics: YR00, YR18, YG67, Colorless Blender 00
Accessories: Copper Cord (retired SU!), Copper Embossing Powder (CPS) & Dimensionals (SU!)
