Happy Birthday Card // Copic Airbrush

This is the last card I’ll be making with my copic airbrush system for a while -because I ran out of compressed air! I’ll have to pick up a refill soon, because I love creating cards using this masking & airbrushing technique – especially with this doodle buds set (as you can see here!).

For this card, I first stamped a pattern with several images from the Doodle Buds set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then cut dies from inkadinkadoo making paper using the coordinating dies. I then loaded my copic airbrush with my BG15 and then my BG13 copic markers and started airbrushing the panel. You can see, toward the top, that I was really running out of air, but it kind of created an ombre effect  so I’d call that a happy accident! When that was finished, I got to work on the sentiment.

I used the Winnie & Walter In a Word: Happy cutaway die, and cut it from some black card stock several times, then stacked the die cuts on top of each other, gluing each layer together with some spray adhesive. I cut a strip of white paper and cut a notch into each end to create a banner and stamped the word “birthday” with some Onyx Black ink. I’m not sure what stamp set that sentiment came from – all I can remember is that I hunted through my stash for quite a while just to find a nice birthday sentiment to match the diecut.

I added a strip of vellum behind the banner before attaching the banner with some foam tape, and then adhered the whole thing to an A2-sized card base and added a few sequins!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
