I've been using this image from Flourishes (Life, Love and Lemons) over and over in Copic Classes to demonstrate how to do the "Fur Technique" using Copic Blender Solution. Click on the highlighted words to see a video tutorial by Sherrie Siemens. This technique works brilliantly to achieve a realistic fur look when using animal images. But it works for other images too! After quickly coloring my Lemons I used a rag and a dab of the Solution to "remove" color..... giving my lemons a bit of texture and kind of a ruddy look, like real lemons. I thought after stamping this image so many times for class it was high time I used it to make a card!
I added a few simple embellishments to dress it up. The gold eyelets are adhesive backed and I popped a little green gem in the middle of each one. A Martha border along the bottom edge, she does make some killer punches! I also used a clear glaze pen to go over the lemons. Finished card size is an A2.
