Using some washi tape (cause it's easy to remove) I taped the piece face down to the back of the page.
Since our bible pages are so thin and transparent, it is easy to see through the column area. Next step is to trace the image as you wish. I have a tutorial coming soon on how to transfer the image onto the whole page with graphite paper.
Here is my traced image. I decided to wait to do the sparkles free-hand.
These are all the pens I used.
- Micron .005
- Signo white gel
- Gelly Roll Gold metallic
- Gelly Roll Red Stardust
- Gell Roll Clear Stardust
- Derwent Watercolor pencil (not using water) - Crimson Lake
- Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencil (not using water) - Violet
I filled in my words at the top with the Gold metallic pen. After it completely dried I went back around the edges with my Micron pen. I also filled in some sparkles and went over those with a Stardust pen.
For the Rubies word I filled it in with my Red Stardust Gelly Roll Pen! Pretty!
