Papertake Weekly ,,, better late than never !!! :-)

A card at last !! :-) I bought an air compressor today and HAD to plug it in to make sure it worked ,,, I was worried that I might blow up my copics so I used a duplicate but it was OK ,, fabby in fact !! :-)

I did mention in an earlier post that we are sponsored by Whiff of Joy and one lucky entrant will win a lovely stamp,see earlier post or go to the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog to see it :-)

The theme this week is ,,,,

ADD A HEART !! easy peasy :-)

I really wanted to play with my compressor so I stamped and cut out some Hero Arts fluffy clouds and stuck them to white card with temporary adhesive spray ,,, then I went to town airbrushing !! :-) I used a very cute Penny Black Gifts for You stamp, which I masked too and created an airbrushed background :-) I coloured the image with Copics and added Star Dust stickles, a charm and a few white Robin's Nest Dew Drops for bling :-) The DP is from Bo Bunny, the flower is Prima, sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and I stamped the sentiments with alphabet sets in brown Memento ink. For the flower center I cut out the 'Love Is' and inked the edges slightly with pink chalk ink, then used an epoxy sticker ( coming soon to Simon Says Stamp along with loads of bottle tops !! )

This is my compressor ,,, fab eh !! Expect to see loads of airbrushing in the coming days ,,,, :-)

Thanks for looking ,,, and sorry this was a late entry !! :-)
