Summer GRILL Fest at CASology

Do you like to throw down on the grill? I love anything with a charcoal-kissed flavor...
well anything vegetarian :) Our CASology challenge for the next 2 weeks is hot, hot, hot!

I used the stamp set from Hero Arts entitled "Happy Dad's Day". There is a cute little grill that I stamped in ombre fashion using soft granite shadow ink and black Copic friendly ink.
When masking, remember to stamp the image that you want to be in the foreground first, then mask it off and layer your other images. Here, I stamped the black grill at the bottom first, then masked it off and stamped the darker gray grill (I used the same soft granite ink, but just stamped it 3 times to darken the color), then masked it off and stamped the top lightest gray grill.
I then colored in the grill using C9, C7, and C5 Copic markers. A tip to making round things look shiny and round - leave a curved highlight right at the edge and don't forget the catch light on the surface.

I think this would be a great guy card :) Time to blaze over to the other DT blog pages!
