And now for my project today –

Bee Mine!   It’s never to late to  ask someone you love to BEE Yours!
This is an adorable stamp by Whimsy and yes – you got it… It’s called Bee Mine!

air compressor and sea foam sponge.

Bazaar Card Shoppe paper – Gumdrop

Ink
Copic Sketch Markers
Airbrush Air Compressor  Optional
ABS N1 Kit – 
(To use if you want to use a compressor or just use an Air can without compressor)
If you plan to do a lot of airbrushing,   a compress or and ABS N1 kit is the way to go!
or
ABS 2 Starter Kit  – To  see if you like it.
If you just want to try airbrushing before jumping into a larger system or you need a really portable system without much fuss, use the ABS-2. Uses Aircan D60, which hooks directly into the air grip
Great for a trial.   Air cans are not the way to go if you want to do a lot of airbrushing!

    Great technique Marie. I’ve never used chisel end of Copics to airbrush! Now I will.

      Thank you Barb! Just make sure the chisel is wet! Markers should have a good amount of ink in them. Do you have a compressor or do you use the air cans?
      I’d love to see some of you airbrushing!
      Hugs, Marie

    What a great technigue for making a background. I don’t have a air brush system, but I do have one of those hand pump type tools for air brushing that I can give this technique a try with.

      Thank you Sandra! You can also drop the alcohol ink and colorless blender on shiny paper and it works if you do not have an air compressor. You Tim Holtz pump works too! 😀 I will do a background that way too! Thank you for stopping by. Hugs Marie
