Tutorial for Copic Marker Europe

Hello everyone! I'm back today to share a tutorial on a 100% Copic card with a simple airbrushed background that I made for Copic Marker Europe - I absolutely love the look of airbrushed backgrounds! 

For today's example, I chose to do a simple winter scene with a character and just a couple of trees. Please note, I did not stamp and mask the character on my scene because I knew I wanted to add it at the end on 3D foam squares, but it is of course possible to stamp it at the beginning.

Material used for my card:
Make It Colour Blending Card
Airbrush and Copics
Masking Film or Post It notes

Step 1

Stamp the elements you need on your scene, starting with what you want to be in the foreground first. To mask, I used Post It Label Pads which have 100% adhesive backs, and picked different colours to show you clearly the different parts of the scene.
 Here, I stamped the little pine tree first where I wanted it, masked it (yellow), then I added orange strips around my "scene" to have an uncoloured frame at the end. I then stamped the tree on the left and masked it (pink). I thought I would have a little snow slope, so I just cut and put pieces of blue Post It Notes to create the slope and protect it from the airbrushing.

Step 2

Airbrush your lightest colour B00 going from left to right and right to left from the bottom of the image and stop midway of your sky. I like using 2 different shades for airbrushed skies (here Bs and BVs) and I always start with my lightest colour, so I can darken the colour afterwards if necessary. 

Step 3

Now start at the top of your image with your second shade - BV02 here - and go down little by little towards the blue area. Airbrush over the beginning of the blue part so that your colours look blended.

Step 4

Darken the sky at the top, using BV04 and stop in the BV02 area. The transition between the 2 BV areas is a bit too visible, but we will work on it in the next step:)

Step 5

Take your BV02 again and go over all the BV04 and BV02 areas starting from the top and being careful to add enough BV02 on the transition to blend it a little and airbrush on the upper part of the blue area too.

Step 6

Now remove your masks and check the result of your airbrushing. And now all you have to do is use your Copics to colour your scene.
