Halloween, Cupcake Challenge, Video Tutorial and a Card...Oh My!

Yes! It's cupcake Friday and I have SO much to show you! Happy Halloween everyone! We are off to the family farm to enjoy family, friends, hotdogs, smores, apple bobbing, kick the can and a little candy too.....

Yeah! A video!!! It's been a while but I just couldn't resist showing you how to do a VERY easy sunset sky with the Copic Airbrush System.

Here is the card I created with the image I did in the video. I just love the pretty fall sunsets we are getting here. I altered the size of some of the panels and the orientation a little too...do I ever follow a sketch to the letter?... probably not.
Ah, once I had the image done it was easy to add a few final touches. Here are all the card deets:
Stamps:
Bird Watching (SEP), Everyday Petites (MLM) all by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Espresso Adirondack Dye Ink (Ranger),Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
Paper:
Simply Smooth White, Suede Brown Dark (Prism), Off Beat Patterned Paper (Basic Grey)
Accessories:
Fragments (Tim Holtz), Markers and Airbrush System (Copic), Edge Distresser (Making Memories), Twine, Sponge


Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the cupcake crew came up with:
Stephanie Hargis: Steph's Stampin' Stuff
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Ana Wohlfahrt: Ink A Stamp
Donna Baker: Stamp A Maniac

Hope you all enjoy your weekend and stay safe and dry tonight!

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous card! Thanks so much for the great tips! I've been considering copics, but you just made me want them a whole lot more! Especially since the ciaos can be used with the air brush system! Thanks so much!

What is Simply Smooth cardstock, who makes it and where do you buy it?

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around routine.
