Wish You Were Here!

This is my entry into the Copic Creations Challenge No. 37 which is coloring tricks using the Copic Blender.

I used two different techniques on this card.

The first was on the background. After I colored and got the shading that I wanted, I went over the entire area with the Colorless Blender.  It gave it a  more mottled look (easier to see in person).  Then for the glass, I colored the glass edges with BG0000 and a bit of BG000. Then since I had colored the wall behind the glass with E31, in the panes of glass I used the Colorless blender and the tip to tip method to pick up a little bit of E31 and streak it through the BG0000 areas. I went the same grain as the glass was showing... It made it look like glass. I liked how that part turned out a lot.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful Weekend!
