I have been working on this Tree Peony Blossom for awhile in order to practice shading white flowers. I really wanted to use different light shades of Copics to make a dappled looking white flower. I still need to work on this "technique" because I have a picture of my Grandfather's white roses in mind as well as a painting in my mother in-law's apartment. White flowers are really just not all greys or browns or stark white. I will keep practicing. Meanwhile, go have a look to see what the other IO designers have made over at the IO Blog.
For the background, I ink blended some distress oxides and distress inks with my blender brushes and then splattered the panel with water and Sheer Shimmer spray. I popped up the flower and added the two white heat embossed sentiment strips. I also added some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets.
Copics Used: (yes this is a crazy mix)
YR0000, E0000, B60, BG0000, RV0000, RV10, BV0000 and perhaps others. I did add some pencil detail using my Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils - mostly Indigo Blue and Black and 90% Cool Grey. I tend to play when I do these so I don't write everything down.
