Hi everyone! I’m popping in today with a card I created using my Copic airbrush/compressor, Sketch markers and Colorless Blender. Using a combination of the three, I created and background and image, using ink to only stamp the butterfly bodies and sentiment.
I first airbrushed Y17, Y13 and YR04 onto a block of glossy card stock. I let that dry while I ran several errands. Once the ink was dry, I placed a rubber butterfly stamp (from Taylored Expressions’ Simply Stamped Butterflies) onto an acrylic block. I spritzed the stamp with Colorless Blender then carefully stamped the butterflies onto the airbrushed card stock.
Upon contact, the Colorless Blender pushes away the ink, leaving the impression of the butterfly. Pretty cool! Once the butterflies were dry, I removed the sprayer/straw from my mini spritzer containing the Colorless Blender and flicked some drops of Colorless Blender over the butterflies. Then once that was dry, I stamped the butterfly bodies and sentiment (from Paper Smooches Many Thanks).
On a totally different creative note…my husband built a very tall cat post with three shelves using on empty (heavy-duty) carpet roll, carpet and wood blocks for shelves. Beneath the shelves he had used bright white brackets. They stood out like a sore thumb but I used my airbrush to spray the brackets so they’d blend in a bit more with the surrounding carpet. The post isn’t the prettiest item in my house but it’s in an inconspicuous spot. I love my two cats and they like the post and shelves. (If they only loved each other…) Anyway, the airbrush came in quite handy.
Have you used an airbrush for anything other than artwork? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
At only 9.9 pounds, the air compressor is lightweight, runs quietly and is very portable. It’s perfect for airbrushing with Sketch or Classic Copic markers and takes up very little space.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
