Pink And Green with Copper By Linda Cain

Jacob 564 PID image
PID Embossed Copper
Paper flower- PID
Corduroy Blossoms-Maya Road
Colbalt Turquoise-Golden fluid acrylics
992 Tombow Marker
Paper Mache house on a dowel
Black acrylic paint
Glue dots and UHU glue stick
Distress Inks Ranger-Black soot, Vintage Photo, Concord
Scrappy Tape-or equivalent double sided tape A MUST for metal
Vintage music paper-Prima

Paint the house on a dowel with black paint. Trace house on vintage paper and cut
out. Use distress ink to highlight edges and glue to back of house with glue stick.

On the BACK of the copper sheet, trace around house with pen to mark copper. Paint front in debossed areas with turquoise paint. Allow to dry for a few seconds and wipe off being careful to leave recessed areas full of paint. Let dry.

On BACK side of copper, add redline tape around edge. Cut out
on the INSIDE of the cutting line. Remove tape backing and adhere to house. I cut about 1/8” inside so the black paint would show.

Cut out Jacob image..isn’t he adorable?? Edge with TomBow pen. Use
tape to adhere image to copper. Use distress ink on blue flower to highlight.
Layer up flowers with glue dots. Add to collage…..ENJOY!
