PROUD AS A PEACOCK

This is not one of my ordinary posts.  Today's post is to showcase my daughter's artwork.  She is a graduate of the Nova Scotia School of Art & Design.  Now I know that I'm a little biased....ha ha... but I just had to post this so you could see what she created.  Jocelyn is engaged and being married in the Fall; for her wedding theme she has chosen peacocks.  She drew this peacock free hand and then colored it with copic markers which are alcohol based.   

Peacock by Jocelyn G. 
First time she ever tried these kind of markers and the first time she had a go with my airbrush machine.

Peacock Close- Up 2 
Close up of the head, got to love the detail.

You go Jocelyn!  I'm proud as a peacock of you!

AIR BRUSHING! I'M SO LOVING IT!

Yesterday, I purchased a small kit for airbrushing, and I think I'm in love!  What a fast and easy way to create gorgeous backgrounds for stamping.  Here are the projects I completed!

Angela's Birthday Card
Here is a Birthday Card that I made for my friend Angela.  These flowers were the perfect stamp set to try this technique out on as the petals were large and allowed for the beginning blunders!  LOL

Easter Egg Trio Card
 
This card was created with the Easter Blossoms stamp set and again how interesting the background is with all these different hues of Easter colors.  

Springtime Smiles Card

This is another one stamped with the Easter Blossoms Stamp Set.  Isn't it a beauty?  I love that Cherry Blossom stamp.

 Hope Card
This is a sneak preview of the May special promotion for Stampin' Up!  Every time this stamp set is purchased the company will donate $2 for Breast Cancer Research.  Three of the four images from the set were used on this card.  Once again the Air Brushed background is so soft and only took minutes to create! 

What a great way to usher in Spring with all these beautiful spring colors.  Guess what my new addiction is going to be?
