All my best friends will tell you that I'm a color junkie. I love a well colored card, thus I will often spend half hour or more just on the coloring of the image. Today I was trying to achieve a realistic looking copper. The image is colored with Copic Markers and Prisma pencils. I start by coloring in the varying shades with the markers, and then go back and add detail with pencils. The card itself is very simple, I wanted the image to stand alone.

You definately achieved the look you were going for! It's amazing how realistic the both the copper and the flowers look. I'd love to be able to sit down and take lessons from you!

I think you achieved the look you were after, with this card. It does look like a copper vase and is very pretty and realistic.
