Uber Fun Background!!!


OOOOO... Copic Airbrush [drool]!  Yep, I can't seem to get enough of it as of late.  So when the Make It Colourful design team was challenged to create a new and different background... I broke out my airbrush (what!?!  It's new to me!!!)

So the concept for a nice airbrush is to use colors that compliment your design, that way when you spray, it makes the image pop.  For example, the browns and reds that I used for this are enhanced by the Y23 Copic airbrushed around the edges.  And if slight overspray occurs, the "mist" just adds to the color palette instead of being covered by it.  Also, I wouldn't have sprayed a color like blue because slight overspray would REALLY stand out on top of these earthy hues.  I hope that makes sense.  Here's a list of Copics that I used for this.... E00, E02, E04, E08, E39, E50, E51, E59, Y23, Y26 and W3.  Y23 is the color that I used on the apron as well as airbrushing the background with it.  I really love how this turned out.  I used Make It Crafty's Housewife Ginger digi for this super fun card.
