I've filled this image of Cocktail Melody by Lemon Shortbread using Copic colors. . .
I love how a little shading with C2 on the pearls, topped with a thin layer of Copic's Opaque White paint, allows the pearls to appear to be pearly white. Yay!
This photo shows the inside of the open gatefold card where I've added a layer of Bazzill Smooth white for completing with handwritten note or stamped sentiment. There's just a touch of a QuicKutz flourish die cut that carries over from the card front. I enjoyed working with the great texture of Bo Bunny's Double Dots Mulberry.
Adorned with more QuicKutz flourishes and a touch of bling with Prima's Say It In Pearls Mixed Crystals Cream, I'm happy that this Cocktail Melody looks quite elegant on this card front. Kaisercraft Gypsy Sisters Collection Esmerelda and an unknown brand of textured teal cardstock provides extra special matted layers.
This view shows the completed card, partly opened . . .
Cocktail Melody is a fabulous image to work with and will make a wonderful image to use for many occasions.
