Stamps, a Mask and an Airbrush

I was rummaging around in my studio the other day and came across a Tim Holtz mask that I hadn't used yet. Imagine that!!! So, first I used it sponging ink over the mask. It looked pretty good. Next I got really adventuresome and got my Copic Air Brushing System out and tried that. Whoa.................. the airbrush turned out amazing. The mask I used is called concerto, it's been out a few years, so it's not new on the market. Since I just received a new music set, set 424 from Sparkle N Sprinkle last month, I used some of those stamps and designed this new card.(Click here to view the new stamp set 424.)

I also used a vellum sheet and airbrushed some black onto it to have it kind of match the colors on the background of the card. Next I made an oval rosette.The oval shape was easy to achieve. Click here for my rosette tutorial. So, here is my first card with an airbrushed background. I hope you like it as much as I do.

By the way, Sunday, Sparkle N Sprinkle is teaming up with Really Reasonable Ribbon for a blog hop. There will be blog candy awarded from both companies, so, make sure to participate Sunday on a great hop. Clicking here will take you to the Really Reasonable Blog.

That's it for now, thanks for stopping, see you soon,

Barb, I really like this card. Now that I think about it, I have a couple of unused masks that I need to dig out. Good inspiration. :-) Your tutorial for making the rosette is great. Thanks for sharing that!
