BBTB2 Challenge - Graphically Speaking

The New Year brings new beginnings, changes but with old friends and continued awesome creativity. Please check out all the wonderful projects using the Graphically Speaking "In Style" icon on our new Bitten By The Bug2 site.

Throughout the month of January I am concentrating on using my Copic Airbrush System to color coordinate embellishments with background papers. I have been using alcohol inks for the last 2 - 2 1/2 years and they have become my favorite medium, but when I saw the Copic Airbrush System I knew that it was my catalyst for this wonderful medium. I have been using the Airbrush System now for a little over 6 months and every day it gets a little bit better, there are no limits with this tool and wonderful color medium. So please let me know what you think and if you have any questions, please ask away.

The background paper is BasicGrey "Skate Shop", over all size for the card is 6"x6", Cricut Cartridge "Graphically Speaking" was used for the "In Style" icon, a 2" circle for the "live,love,laugh" which was computer generated, the flower is from a Martha Stewart punch. The "In Style" tag is from an Ellison die and the bees are QK. Misc. ribbon and crystals were used. All coloring done with Copic Markers and the Airbrush System. Hugs, Sandi

"Your" airbrush is my favorite too! I love all the beautiful shades that look so soft and just gently move in to each other. Another outstanding card, thanks for sharing. ~Diane

I love anything you do...and with each creation I say "now THIS is my fave" but it never sticks because with the next edition, it takes first place. And so it goes.
Hugs.

What an incredible design for this cut. Gee, maybe I should try the ABS. I get so darn frustrated with my Copics sometimes. I know I'm going to learn so much from seeing your designs. Your talent is incredible.
