Copic Airbrushing CAS for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today see's the next challenge at the

with the very talented Helen, choosing the theme of

"One Layer Card"

oh boy I just knew I would struggle with this one, as if you follow me regularly you will have noticed that clean and simple and me just do  not go together, but we try to meet in the middle.  So as I have been trying out my "sunset" airbrushing, I thought that I would put this to use on this little number, see what you think?
I as required use one piece of card and made a 5" square.  I took the smaller of the grand nestie circles and using a scrap piece of paper cut out an aperture.  I then placed this apertured sheet over my blank white card, and secured it to the cutting matt.  I then selected my airbrush colours and tried them out on rough paper, before the wafting them slowly over the aperture, blending slowly down to the very lightest colour.  Before removing the "mask" I then took one of my silhouette clear stamps and some black stazone and stamped an image over the aperture.  After removing the "mask" I then stamped the My Sentiments Exactly sentiment to the bottom right.  VoilĂ  :)

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 400 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 400 follower candy you can do so here
