Topical Tuesday #82: Adding Detail

Hi everyone, it's Marcia here. It's my turn to host Topical Tuesday and today I am sharing how I use my Copic Multiliner to add detail to stamped images before I colour them.

Most images are pretty amazing as they are, but sometimes I love to add some personal touches. In the case of today, it's adding in some clothing detail and extra embellishment.

I've used the Annabelle Stamps image called 'Lil Monster's Birthday' ... I've stamped it on blending card in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

He's pretty cute as is, but using my multiliner sized 0.1, I've added in the following details:
  • Some jewels on his crown
  • Big fat polka dots on the balloon
  • A shirt seam with buttons
  • Cuffs onto his sleeves
  • Some ground for him to stand on

Once I did this, I coloured him up with my Copics, matching him to my printed papers - which in this case have come from Carta Bella 'Well Played' range.

He's now ready to make his appearance on the front of a card!

You can use your multiliner to add all kind of details to your images:
  • Freckles
  • Flowers
  • Clouds
  • Fences
  • Roads
  • Brick walls (a favourite of mine)
  • Hair ribbons
The possibilities are endless. But you must use a Copic multiliner pen, otherwise your black ink will bleed once you colour over it with Copic markers.

Now here is Lil Monster in all his glory .... have a fab day!

  4. Wow - your added details are fantastic - they blend in so well with the stamped image - I had to look at the photos twice! Great idea - I never thought of doing this before. I'm going to try it! Thanks for another fun challenge!
