Airbrush System with Spica Pens

Over this past weekend Mad for Markers were at the Paperific Craft Show at the Royal Melbourne Show Grounds. We all had an absolute ball and I met so many gorgeous crafting friends - Hello to you all.

At the show we had Mandy from Copic Australia (Express Graphics) come over and show us how to use the Copic Airbrush System with the Atyou Spica pens. It takes a lot of getting used to as you can't sit the pen in the 'barrel' (so to speak) but it is effective. Unfortunately these photos don't do it justice. It is so much more sparky in real life. I used the TGF Syren stamp that I purchased from Mad for Markers (Sammi) at the show. I love colouring her hair. So cute.

I did a side view just to show you the sparkle on the card airbrushed but still
doesn't look quite as nice as IRL.
I airbrushed the swirls with Purple Spica pen.

Copics used:
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 21
Hair: YG21, 23, 63, 67, blender
Tail: BV000, 02, 04, 08, Purple Spica
Airbrushed with a Green spica pen
Rhinestones: YG23.
