Sandy Sunsets



Hey everyone! How's your week going? Mine is crazy busy .... AGAIN! LOL.... crazy busy seems to be the new normal these days.

Today, I'm sharing a card I did with the Copic Airbrush system and one of our new sets called Sandy Sunsets. I think this is one of my favorites done by Marianne from this release. I always love cards that are easy, but don't look easy kwim? I also used the background set called Whispy Patterns... it's another favorite. :) Along the bottom of the brown cardstock, is all distressed (hard to see in the photo.. sorry).


Airbrushing is SO easy with Copic Markers. Just pop in the marker and go. Clean up? Just pop it out and put the cap back on. Gotta love that huh? If you don't have an airbrush system, you can get similar results by sponging. Both are easy and fast. After I was all done with the airbrush and filled in the sand, I added some extra green to the palm tree leaves with the brush tip on my marker.

So... do you want to try this techniqe and others? You can come down to Memories of Time, here in Coos Bay and sign up for my class on Friday, May 22nd! I'd LOVE to see yah! The class fee includes the stamp set, and we'll make a couple really fun projects you can take home. Call, or stop by Memories of Time and reserve your spot, space is limited, first come first serve. I know it's going to be a blast!
