Okay I feel a little silly now…..some videos went live last week before they were supposed to. Ya know, stuff happens, but ah well, right!? So today, here are the blog posts for those two  – one is Copic Airbrush Penguins, the other Zig Clean Color Hippos!

 

Penguin Valentines with Copic Airbrush Skies

I seem to end up with all the penguin stamps at one time or another….maybe it’s my lifelong affinity for these cute little guys! And I especially love, with a set like this, that the sentiments are mostly year-round ones so the set has a longer shelf life.  Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This same idea works for lots of different kinds of stamps – but if you’re going to airbrush, an animal with black works great so you can use that dark color over any oopses in the airbrushing.

If you don’t have an airbrush, you can always try doing some inking in the background instead! Same masking would apply.

Zigs, Water, and Hippos

To color this sweet hippo, I started out looking online for colors for a “real” hippo – and discovered there’s more pink or salmon color on them than I had thought! Originally I was going to just put that pink in the areas I saw in photos….but decided to just go for a full on pink hippo! And I discovered a way to make my Zigs last a tidge longer too – watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
