Welcome to Day 4 of the My Favorite Things Stamps February Release! I chose the Space Explorer set to use today--you can see why, right? He's cute!
I thought I would show you pictures of my airbrushed background, because it was experimental for me. I pulled out some of my Fluorescent Copic colors--probably the first time I have used some of these! I sprayed a splotch of three fluorescent colors first, keeping a light yellow green near the top where I thought I might want my moon image. (All colors are listed toward the bottom of the post on my Copic Colors Map.)
Next I used my Copic C6 to airbrush around the fluorescent circles.
Finally, I used C10 to deepen all of the in-between spaces. The fluorescent colors were standing out a little more than I wanted them to by this time, so I lightly airbrushed C4 across the entire card front.
Looks like it will work! I had to think about that moon position/lighting for a bit; at first I had the light side of the moon facing my little space explorer, but when I thought about the moon not actually shining, but only reflecting the light of the sun, I decided that both the moon and the space explorer needed to be lit by the sun, with their light and shadow patterns the same.
Shown above are the Copic Markers that I used to color the Space Explorer and moon images. For the sentiment tag, I heat embossed detail white embossing powder onto black cardstock, then airbrushed my fluorescent colors (same ones that I used in the background) onto the white embossed sentiment.
While I linked all MFT products below, the links to the NEW release products will not work until Release Night, Tuesday at 9pm, Eastern, on February 7. (All other links should work now.)
