Hi everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the most wonderful time of the year. Today Roxie Glaza created this beautiful Wildflowers and Butterflies card using our Perfect Airbrush, Perfect Layers Mini tools and our Perfect Cutting Mat. Don’t for get we are giving a free Perfect Cutting Mat with any purchase over $20 at www.PerfectPaperCrafting.com.
Here is Roxie’s card:
Creating the background: Scribble Copic marker in three shades starting with the darkest at the bottom. Drop on blending solution and I then used the Perfect Airbrush to spritz on the solution to create smaller drops and then spritzed on yellow alcohol ink.
In order to keep the nozzles of both bottle and air brush in line with each other I rest the air brush on an empty marker container, placing the screw knob inside a section added stability.
For those who aren’t familiar with alcohol inks, they dry very quickly so I worked with the ink coming directly from the bottle – squeeze a little ink out so it runs down the nozzle and blow it to the paper with the air brush.
Once the ink and blender solution dried I stamped the panel with a background image in yellow but you have to look close to see a bit of added texture. This shows better in real life.
Now the background is ready go to be used as an under panel or in my case stamping on addition images.
