So this is bliss... Part deux

I got the Copic airbrush!! And a mini compressor so I don't have to deal with those little air cans!! I've been playing with it for a couple days now and it's so much fun I think I may use it on almost every card I make! And here's the first: You can barely tell, but all that blue sky around Riley is airbrushed. I love that it's such a soft, even coverage.

Even though I’ve been buying a TON of new stuff lately, I’ve also been trying to use up some of my stash as well. I dug out a 6x6 Fresh Print Swatch Book (remember those?) in Banana and used a few pieces from it. I went with the plain yellow for my scalloped square, and then stamped the dot pattern from the It’s A Celebration set from Papertrey Ink all over the plain orange sheet. I punched out the word “sunshine” from the verse cardstock sheet and glued it into a piece from the new Hodgepodge Hardware set from Stampin’ Up!

To finish off the card, I threaded some May Arts ribbon through the hardware piece and added some of those Michael’s decorative embellishments (which I’m calling Faux Drops) to the corners of the scalloped square.

Other materials used: Garden Riley stamp from Hanna Stamps!; white cardstock from Georgia Pacific; square and scalloped square Nestabilities from Spellbinders; markers from Copic; black Brilliance ink from Tsukineko; oval punch from Stampin' Up!; Eclipse masking tape.
