Winter in August!

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today with some Christmas inspiration and a bit of airbrushing with my Copics. It's never too early to start on those Christmas cards, isn't it!

The image I used is a Paperbabe Stamps called Dillon Frost Sprite. I stamped Dillon in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and masked my image. When I want to airbrush something, I always start with the background because if things do not turn as I want, I can easily start again. I used three different blues here though you really cannot tell from my photo, going from the lightest to the darkest - again, if your background is not dark enough, you can always make it darker, but not lighter. Once I was satisfied with my background, I took the mask away and coloured Dillon in Copics. I added a bit of glitter tape and a Make It Crafty snowflake chipboard painted in white acrylic and applied white paint from a pen around my image for a more frosty look and a few snowflakes.
