Crafts & Me - Paper Tearing & I've got a new toy!

Its our first challenge of 2011 at Crafts and Me and for the next 2 weeks we'd like to see your PAPER TEARING projects!  I know this is difficult for some tearing all those lovely DP's but you can do it lol!  For this one  got to play with my new toy :D :D :D   I got a Letrajet - Promarker Airbrush System for Xmas and I'm loving it!

I've used a stamp by Hannah Lynn called Glacier Lily Fairy which is first time I've played with her.  I coloured her with promarkers and sakura stardust pens and used a yellow souffle pen on the stamens and dots on mushroom.  Then I got to play with my new toy :D  I didn't mask the image as the airbrush has pretty good control and started with canary going right into the image then some pumpkin then some bands of orange and red.  I used the same colours on the flowers which were white to start with, they take literally seconds to do and dry quickly.  I think we're going to get along just fine and think they go great with the fairies and fantsy type stamps I favour :)

I've finished the design with a few sprays of Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold which Teresa is now stocking along with dazzling diamonds and pearl, I use all 3 depending on what colour the card is as they give such a pretty finish.  If you're wanting to try them the gold is what is what t says, clear from one angle and a beautiful shimmery gold in the light.  Pearl is the same only a pearly sheen and dazzling diamonds is quite clear and just gives a really subtle sparkle.  DP is from DCWV pocket full of posies stack.
