Marcie in Yellow

I'm getting ready for a class that I'm teaching at Gone Scrappin' in Bloom in Rossburn. I've made a couple of sample cards, highlighting the yellow copic colors that we're going to be using, as well as the airbrush system that people are going to try out.  I thought I'd post the two sample cards so you could see them.






For this card I used the spotlight technique. I stamped two copies of the Marcie image, and used by circle spellbinder die to cut out a circle from the second image. I colored only the circle image and popped it up with a pop dot on the main image.  I like this technique as it really highlights the colors and the image in a totally different way.

My second card is this one:



I airbrushed the light yellow background around Marcie. If you take a closer look you'll see that I didn't cut out the masked area between her legs--so it's blank.  I don't much like the look, but I left it so we could talk about it at the class.  I also airbrushed the pink paisley bracket up in the left hand corner.

It's my first real attempt at airbrushing and I'm definitely hooked. I'm ordering a compressor as we speak!
