PMS sneak peek day 1 with a PMS challenge to boot!

>> Monday, August 3, 2009

Yes it is TIME! Time for all those wonderful sneak peeks to start! Those sneak peeks that i've been working my tail end off to finish before i left to visit my Grandmother (who might I add, at 95 looks AMAZING!)

Today i get to show you a cutie patootie little fairy appropriately named Teddy.

Here's my card...


As soon as Lisa Kind (this weeks design team member in charge for the monday challenge) told me she wanted us to create our own DP... i just KNEW i wanted to use the clouds from the Raindrops and Rainbows set. Now that this set has been rubberized... yes, thats right, the raindrops and rainbows set will be available in RUBBER on August 7th! That makes these clouds perfect and simple to use to create backgrounds to your fairies!

First i masked Teddy, and then stamped some clouds right onto the paper he was on because i liked the outline effect. I then stamped some extra clouds to create a mask over the clouds. Then i used my Copic Airbrush (i told you i'm becomming addicted to that thing.... no card is complete without it!). I also masked the ground separate from the sky and drew in some grass. Here's a close up of the image...



I also used the clouds again for some DP in the background because i didnt think altering the background of the image was enough for this challenge. :) It was super easy though, i just inked them up in white craft ink and stamped a random patterned on my cardstock and VIOLA, custom DP! And since i used the clouds in the image, it matched perfectly!

Now, my backgroud was not the only thing i airbrushed! I couldnt find a button to match my cardstock i used. I was like seriously!? Out of ALL the buttons i own (and i own a lot of buttons, 3 full size ball jars and 1 über cute bottle that my friend Tangii made for me that i'll show you later after the sneak peeks are over!) and in all that i didnt have the perfect button! So i matched my cardstock to a copic marker, airbrushed away and i had a perfect button. Man i love my airbrush! :) It helps that i have every copic marker color besides 2 (and i'm still missing some greys and the florescents).

And now...

Teddy is so cool. Airbrushing sound fun, I decided to go for promarkers instead of copics and noticed that they have an airbrush kit.....is that another thing to add to my birthday list for December ????Hugs Avril xxx

This is so cute, Katie! I'm thinking about that airbrush system! I didn't think I'd want it, but I'm rethinking that! Love how you created you bg!
