Happy Halloween with the Craftwell Ebrush

Hello peeps!!!  I got a new toy!!

I recently purchased the Craftwell Ebrush from HSN.  I had been wanting it forever, but the price was rather high and the reviews were horrible. I decided to take a chance and purchase it because,
1.It was on sale and,
2. I had a coupon!!!
Aren't  those the only reasons we crafters need?

The Craftwell Ebrush is a cute little airbrush system that you can use with various markers. The one I purchased came with a 3lb. air compressor and 6 marker adapters.

I watched a few videos by Debi Tullier prior to my Ebrush arriving. I tell ya, this lady is a whiz with this ebrush. I was up an running within an hour of receiving it.

So far, I have found the bad reviews not to be the case for me. I'm finding this tool to be very easy to use, I'm having so much fun with it and I can't wait to try more projects!

This is my Halloween card and the instructions on how I did it. Really fun!!!

First I cut my card base 4.25x5.5 (that's the Ebrush in the background)
 Using my Silhouette Cameo Design Studio, I cut out my images to mask the areas on the card base that I did not want covered with ink. I also cut out the lettering for the "Happy Halloween".
 Next I used painters tape to hold down the base and to help with splatter control.
 Here are my images
 I lifted them with lift-off tape for vinyl.
 Here are the images on the card, you may not be able to see them because they are white. I used my Copic Marker to spray.
 This is how it looks after I take the images off
 Next I took a smaller piece of card stock 4 x5.25 and tore the edges of to give it jagged look. I used this as my guide for the outer edge of the card that I sprayed in black.

 Don't have the right color embellishments? Not to worry!!!  Ebrush and Copics to the rescue!!!
I did the inside of the card with  Stampin Up Sweet Centers and a few stickers. I popped up the embellishments to give some dimension and that was it!  Quick and easy cards for friends.

Thanks for looking!!
