My craft table has a shiny wooden surface and I often see reflections there. Silverware and other metal pieces may reflect from the shiny surface of a dining room table. With that said, here is my attempt at showing the reflective qualities of copper metal onto wood. (See my recent post on Using Copics for Copper Metal Things here.)
This Large Pail stamp is from Stamps by Judith. I stamped the image first using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bazzill Smooth White cardstock. I drew a short grounding line on each side of my image using a Copic Multiliner. To help me with sizing the reflection, I used Memento London Fog ink to stamp the same image onto my Stamp-a-ma-jig mat then quickly turned it over, lined it up with the bottom of the black pail and laid the gray image down. It gave me a very light outline of the original image in reverse.
I filled the pail and its reflection using Copic colors E33, E37, E39, E02 and a little R37 in the handle.
I used a ruler and Copic Multiliner 0.03 to draw fine lines to resemble wood. Then I filled the wood area by deliberately streaking E31, E35, E47, W3 and W5, right over my reflective shades.
I used Spellbinders Labels 8 to die cut and emboss around my image. Using a mask over the pail and wood, I airbrushed a light layer of G24, G21, B21 and R37 for the background. I used My Minds Eye Penny Lane Free Bird "Beauty" Charmed Stripes to create my card. After adhering the card elements, I added a few curled paper strips and applied a little Flower Soft in shades of Vintage Christmas.
Here's a picture of the completed card that shows where I think I've fairly represented the reflective qualities of copper metal on wood. Now, how do I keep my pail from sliding down that sloping surface? - LOL!!! Woe is me and my Copic dilemmas - LOL!!!
