Kitty in the pumpkins


Yay! World Card Making Day was so much fun for me. I spent most of the day reorganizing my supplies and straightening my workspace. Once I finished that I was finally able to take my airbrush compressor out of the box and use it for the first time. My Dad got me one for my birthday in March and I never tried to use it until now. I got a bit nervous when I turned it on as it made a very load noise for about 10 seconds then it was completely silent. I thought I broke it. After reading the directions more carefully I realized I had to twist the pressure regulator and bring the pressure down to 40 psi which is the suggested pressure for airbrushing with copics. Once I did that and just pressed the button on the airgrip it sprayed just fine even though the machine was not actively running, Pfew! It works great. No more buying the D60 aircans for me.

I went to Tuesday Morning in search of a xyron sticker maker...the bundle was 20 dollars and I decided not to get it. Instead I got this great clear makeup organizer for $5 and decided to use it on my workspace as a holder for my adhesives and scissors...which I can never find... they always end up getting lost.

I got this great Inkadinkado stamp at my LSS Scrappers Cove yesterday. Funny story, there was an accident on my street so I could not get home from Tuesday Morning. I had to drive to the highway so that I could come back down in the other direction to get to my house. Well I took a wrong turn and ended up on the street with Scrappers Cove so I figured I might as well stop in and have a look around. When I saw this adorable stamp I just had to get it. I was very well behaved otherwise. I got 10 12x12 papers, a copic E35 refill, 3 bo bunny rosette trims, and some ruffled ribbons. I think I was pretty tame considering all the amazing things they had in. I was like a kid in a candy store. Totally overwhelmed! But I found out they sell X-Press It Blending Card by the sheet. $0.60 a sheet, not too bad considering I won't have to pay shipping.

Here I masked my colored image with Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and then proceeded to airbrush with copic markers B37 and G17.
