Faux airbrush

When I picked up my magazine at the weekend, I decided to have a go at the new technique challenge over on the Craft Stamper Magazine blog http://craftstamper.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/new-take-it-make-it-blog-challenge.html   The challenge was to have a go at faux airbrushing and there is an article in the March issue that shows you how to do it.  This is my first attempt - I think the technique lends itself to a slightly wider stencil than the one I chose to use but I think the effect still shows just about.....


I used peacock feathers and mowed lawn distress inks through a sweet poppy peacock feather stencil.  I added a couple of shades of stickles to the feather centre.  The sentiment strip is a banner cut from a strip of water colour paper that I made using more distress inks (peacock feathers and salty ocean) using salt to get the mottled effect.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

  2. I love the colours and what a beautiful stencil. I know what you mean about it being narrow though. I used a stencil with a small pattern too and with hindsight think the technique is best for larger areas.
