I got a new toy this week. It's the airbrush for the promarkers. So of course I had to have a play and if's fab. I thought I'd go through the steps so you could see how I got to the cards.
Here's the airbrush. I already had a older version but hadn't played with it so this was all new to me. The letraset one comes with a promarker in skyblue. You do need to buy the air cannister for it to work.
I then stamped two images on my usual card for stamping and coloured them in. They are both using Promarkers. This is the first time I've coloured an image in just greys.
I then stamped another image on a post it note. I made sure the image was over the sticky part as this will be my mask. I then cut it out.
I then placed the mask over my image. I then used some wacky tape to put the clouds on. You can see I used different sizes and shapes.
I then airbrushed. The closer to the image you are the darker the colour. I then took the clouds off and then airbrushed again but further away from the image to get a lighter colour.
As you can see the effect is wonderful. I did the grey image aswell to show the versatility of airbrushing. I'm really pleased how they turned out. The only thing I would change is I would cut the mask even closer.
I'm entering this card into The Sugar Bowl sketch challenge.

I would like to enter this into the Sugar Bowl challenge.
Thanks for looking
I thought I'd share some christmas cards I've made. There will be a few posts with different cards on as I would like to enter them into the Sugar Bowl competition and also on Sugar Nellies facebook page there was a snow challenge so I'm entering these into that aswell.
One of my goals was to start to use up my paper stash as I have so much of it. So these papers are from my stash.
Hope you like them all

Today I thought I'd share with you a quick card. If you need something that's fairly quick and easy have a go at this. I used my Expression and Gypsy to make the basic shapes. I used pocket of posies cardstock, bazill basics cardstock, Neenah card and a sugar nellie stamp.
Here is the how I laid the card for the second layer on the Gypsy. You need to make sure the card you want to stamp and colour on is the smallest shape. I used the card I would normally use my promarkers, copics or spectrum noirs on.
