I created a gift/treat bag (Sizzix) to fill with yummy goodies for St. Patrick's Day, using several different techniques, for the iCopic challenge (anything but a card). The first technique I wanted to try is called Glittered Copics, where you use your Copic markers to tint glitter. (You can find the video tutorial here.) I began by taping the umbrella stencil from Dreamweavers to white cardstock and using a glue pad to apply glue to the exposed area. I didn't want to glitter the entire card as was done in the tutorial; just the umbrella. Next I liberally applied PK Glitz glitter (white pearl) to the glue, burnished it in with my fingertip, and then colored with my Copics. This was a really fun technique and I definitely want to try it again.
I decided to add a black mat so the glittered umbrella would pop better. The background for the umbrella was created by using several layers of the Canadian Kaleidoscope and the Canadian Kaleidoscope Angel Wings dies from Cheery Lynn. The sentiment is cut with Spellbinders and for the background, I used a technique called Chalk Attraction (you can find out more about it here) with a shamrock rubber stamp. I also used this same rubber stamp to create coordinating tissue paper.
shiner, so I applied Versamark over the entire die cut and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Lastly, I added some shamrock ribbon to complete the project.
I think I bake some shamrock cookies to fill this cute treat bag.
In addition to the iCopic challenge, I'm entering this in the Dreamweavers (go green or go Bragh) challenge, the Cheery Lynn (lots of layers) challenge, and Sweet Stamps (St. Patrick's Day) challenge.
