TTIC #34, Atyou Spica Pens, and more Airbrushing with Copics!

I am so excited that my sweet friend Jacquie kicked off her guest designer spot for Twilight Tuesday today with their Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #34 - "Celebrate Summer". Congrats, Jacquie!

I thought this would be a great time to jump in on the fun with the challenges! Well, okay... here it goes!

It all started out with the image. Funny because I always had Renesmee in mind when I was playing around with her. I had shown you all how I airbrushed the large scalloped oval with my new ABS 2. Then I had set the card aside, unfinished.

I pulled it back out for the challenge. Renesmee having fun in the sun during the summer!

It's for Twilight so we need some dazzle! One of the goodies in my giveaway this month is a set of three Copic Atyou Spica Glitter pens. These awesome pens have micro glass flakes that dries quickly (no mess either in the application!) and sparkle so pretty! Take a look for yourself!


Here I used the CLEAR Atyou Spica glitter pen for Renesmee's skin.
She doesn't sparkle quite like her father, but her skin glows when she goes out in the sun.
I just wanted a soft sheen so I went over her skin very lightly.


I thought the words "Hello Sunshine" that comes with this set captures Renesmee so well.

Starting with the lighter color, I gave the small oval a coat of yellow.


Then I went around the edges with a darker color.

To even out the colors, I went back over everything with the yellow again.


I love seeing what's underneath my project after I am done with the airbrush.
