The Emerald Fairies meets Copic Airbrushing.......................................

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
The parcel van this morning delivered a fabulous package to me from Stamps and Memories, thank you so much Wendy such fast delivery, have been playing all day.......................and if I did not have to cook tea I would still be playing and more than likely will be playing after tea too :) and for the record my fingers nails have been air brushed in BG05 a very fetching colour but Matt says I need some latex gloves, I think I will have to agree with him. Matt has treated me to the system for my birthday and Christmas but is letting me play now :)

Whilst my sister was with us, she visited lots of friends in the area, whilst she was not with us I got time to do some colouring, although remind me next time to stick to my norm.... you see I normally create the card first then colour to co ordinate, on this occasion it was the other way around.  Although that did not seem to matter as anything that really did not fit my colour scheme of the image was rapidly air brushed to match, awesome!!!!!!

oh sorry I am rattling on when you probably just want to see what the air brush did, well here you go
This is a 12 x 8.5 card Birthday Card, the inner sentiment contains the birthday wishes and it has been punched around the page with the MS daisy punch.
The original white card has been airbrushed with the BG05, and then little pearls from the Hobby House added to the centre of each daisy.  

By the way did I say I went to Tilly's and the Hobby House yesterday craft shopping too, well a girl has got to do what a girl has to do.......................

The papers are from the aqua Papermania Capsule Collection, the oval die and oval scallop die are the smaller of the grand nesties and the shaped die is a Go Kreate.  I have added cheesecloth under the scallop oval and slipped in the Emerald Fairy Sentiment which has been airbrushed.  Marianne die scrolls have been added(with a light air brush) and a spray of flowers/feathers.  The little toadstool I could not resist, it matched the image :)   I have added more Hobby House pearls around the image frame, the image plate has been coloured with the airbrush as has the little bow. The little gold butterfly charm has been airbrushed

Do you think I went over board on the airbrushing, or would you have done the same.

Here is a close up of the little toadstool and the butterfly with the fine wafting of blue across the Marianne dies.
and the all important copic coloured image of Kayla & Twinkie, images from the Emerald Faerie Garden.

Now I would also like to apologise for my lack of blogging / commenting, as it is my week off, there are lots of jobs that required doing................have completed 2 years of P87 today and with Matt's assistance, weeded the raised bed.  You know those weeds really think they own the place.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 300 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 300 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too.

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
