I've been playing around in The Captains Quarters, and I decided to try and save a UFO. This is what came out:
It's not about the card so much, which I do not love at all; it's about the sequins. You see, I wondered if you could color the white sequins with Copics like you can color pearls and rhinestones, and I had mixed results.
The sequins on this card were an effort to cover up the fact that I failed to successfully adhere the die-cut piece without all the adhesive showing, which is why it was a UFO. All the spots with icky adhesive stuff got a piece of bling. After I was done, the ones I missed got Glossy Accents. It's not pretty, and will probably end up in the trash.
However, my test worked. I successfully colored white sequins with a BG13 Copic:
The salmon/peach ones came that color. I tried to color some with R05 and it came out splotchy. I think red and I don't get along. ANYway, my experiment worked, so I'm happy.
Thanks for stopping by!
