It’s Day Three of the Splitcoast Member Company LoveFest, and today we are celebrating Stamping Bella! You can find her challenge for the day HERE! Keep in mind, we’ll have a lot of prizes at the end of LoveFest, and you are invited to play even if you do not have any of the sponsor company’s stamps or tools. So, don’t be shy! Take a peek and meet a new friend!
I have enjoyed a lot of Stamping Bella stamps over the years, but her Ramona line is my favorite. I have a redhead 10 year old in this house, and these images and Ramona’s adventures always make me grin!
My image is stamped on Xpress It Blending Card and colored with Copic Markers. After the image was colored, I cut a mask from thin copy paper of the exact image and a few little cloud shaped die cuts and airbrushed around with my favorite sky color: BG000. I topped it off with some more die cut clouds cut from vellum and covered with glitter – just so I could play Em’s challenge! <wink>
A note about the airbrush system: I use the Sparmax Air Compressor from Copic. I really enjoy this system because I’ve never had trouble with even air flow, and most importantly it’s so quiet. That said, to air brush with your Copic markers, you can use any air compressor that will regulate to 40-60PSI. If you purchase or already have a smaller air compressor, you just need an ABS3 set up for the actual gun and nozzle. And, if you are looking for a complete system that is a bit more portable, you might like the Airbrush Starting Kit – ABS1 .
We have another full weekend here at the Craig house…church activities and basketball action will keep us busy today. I’m hoping for a few more minutes tucked into my stamping chair, and that’s my wish for you, too! Happy Saturday!
