The Christmas card inspiration from The Craft's Meow continues today! Today's peek is of this beautiful oil lamp decorated for the holidays. And it gave me a chance to take out my Copics!
Coloring the lamp to look like brass took some thought. But my first step when coloring a challenging image is to always look to the internet for real-life images. I Googled brass oil lamps and found several images that worked for me to look at and figure out which markers would work best. I grabbed Ys and Es. Yellow, but also a hint of brown. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out.
Here's a look at the markers I used, in case you were wondering. :)
Head on over to The Craft's Meow blog and check out the rest of the inspiration!
thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I am away for a long weekend. It was quarter break at school, so the little man and I headed to MN to visit with my parents, sister, and grandma. Its going to be freezing cold up there and a chance for snow! Crazy. Have a wonderful weekend!
