a tutorial with copics and an airbrush

I love to work with my copics and airbrush, because you can make such wonderful backgrounds in a very easy way. Let me show you how:

Step 1:
Choose a template that you like (I used the flower by Dutch Doobadoo)  and some copic colours (RV11, R24 and R59). 
Put your marker with the chiselpoint in the airbrush and spray some ink through the template. If you keep your marker close to the template the colour will be more intense than if you keep a little distance. This way you can make variations in light and dark hues. 
Be careful not to spray ink to close to the edge of the stencil because that will give you a ugly kind of border in the middle of your project. 

Step 2:
Repeat with another colour.

Step 3:
And again I picked another colour. 
Because the alcohol inks are transparant you can make some lovey layers. 

step 4:
For my last layer I used another template (Diamond by Dutch Doobadoo) and another colour (YG07).
Red and Green are opposite each other in the colourwheel. When using inks or paints red and green would normally turn muddy, but the alcohol ink in the copics dry immediately after using. This gives us a great advantage over ink or paints, you can use it more easily on your project. Allthough you still have to be a little careful when layering it on dark red places because of the transparancy of the ink. It will look a bit muddy in such places. 

Step 5:
Another fun way of using the templates is not adding another colour, but bleach out some colour by using the activator. Just spray a little activator through the stencil and see what happens. 

Step 6:
I also like stamping with copics. Just add the copic ink with the chiselpoint on your stamp.
Spray a little activator on the stamp. Not too much otherwise your stamp will smudge. I like to keep a distance of about 20 cm or spray some activator in the air and move the stamp through the activatormist. 

Step 7
I used 2 different stamps and 2 stencils. I never use more than 3 different stencils on small projects as it might look to heavy. 

Step 8:
Use your background in a project. I used it to make a card for my mum's birthday. 
I used an image by Aurora wings. Colours I used for colouring the image are: 
E00, E02, E13, BV00, RV11, R0000, R24, R59,Y0000, YG07, YG17 and G94.
The flowers are from the hobby craftshop and are coloured with my airbrush too. 

I hope you like my tutorial. If you have any questions about this technique please let me know.

have a fabulous day

Dutch Doobadoo GEARS

Vandaag een extra uitgelicht omdat we jullie willen laten kennis maken met het nieuwe Paper Art in kraft papier. Afgelopen maand zijn deze Paper Art gears uitgekomen en die zijn toch wel erg gaaf. 

We have an extra spotlight this month and we would like to introduce the new Paper Art GEARS to you. Aren't they absolutely cool?

We hebben gekozen voor kraft zodat je ze niet op kleur hoeft te brengen en het meteen een hele stoere uitstraling heeft. Ik heb ze met gesso wit geverfd en daarna met inkt bespoten. De hartjes zijn gemaakt met Dutch Doobadoo cardboard Hearts. 

The gears are in made of kraft paper but you can easily colour them in any colour you would like to use. I painted mine with gesso and sprayed them with ink. The tiny hearts are by Dutch Doobadoo too.
