Airbrushed Tag

 Hello to all copic fans!
Kjersti here, and today I have made you an airbrush tutorial.
I often use tags, inspired by Tim Holtz. However there
will be a big difference when copic provides a glossy surface

 To avoid spills I use Clearsnap Color Catcher when working.
Always start outside the tag, switch on the compressor and turn
the sketch marker until you get a steady colour spray. Then start
to airbrush by moving the handle sloooow back and forth
  - when you think it is slow enough - try a bit slower.
That way you get a smooth and nice colour result.

 I start with the lightest color, adding the dark right out at the edge.
The tag is split in two colours, copics used:
YR12,YR14,E84 og E87
YG97, YG95 og E87

The image, an old Paperback Studio stamp, is embossed.
It is important to finish the airbrushing before stamping, for  

unlike DistressInk the copic ink covers the embossing.

The flowers, a Penny Black stamp, is colored with copic
marker E44, sprayed with activator and then stamped. Just
wait a second or two before you stamp - to avoid the ink to bleed.
I also used the activator for the "raindrops" on the tag.

Finally, I sprayed through a doilie using E89 - I really love the effect. 
I also use the doilie for decoration - between the Copic paper  
and the cardboard.

And here is the tag I made, finished with flowers, lace and twine. 

 Hope I managed to inspire you to play
with airbrush and Copic.

Wish you a wonderful week!
Hugs Kjersti:)
