OCC - Tracing Images

TRACING IMAGES

On day 8 I was so inspired by Kathy Rocoosin's card that I knew I had to try it.  This technique is so simple but I really have never thought of it before.



First you stamp your image on your card with very light ink.  Kathy used a big beautiful floral background stamp on her card but since I don't own any similar stamp I stamped my card with a few different stamps to create a floral background.  Then using a silver glittery gel pen I traced the lightly stamped image.  You can either trace a portion or the whole image.  I chose to trace the whole image.  Then I went in and coloured with my copics.  The gel pen gives it a touch of elegance and shimmer.


I am very pleased with this card.  The copics actually picked up the shimmer from the gel pen and spread a dusting of the shimmer throughout the whole card.  Too bad the pictures did not pick up on that.  I enjoyed this technique a great deal and will definitely be using it again.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for viewing my creations.

    1. Hi, the paper is just a cheapy 210gsm cardstock from Office Works. The copic markers did seep through the back. I just wanted to try out this technique and didn't expect it to turn out so well. It would have been nice to do this on heavier card since this is a one layered card.
