Northern Lights Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Barb here with a fun tutorial using Copics and an Airbrush to create Northern lights in a starry sky.  I found some photos on-line to use.  Here is an example that I used.


Here's what you'll need to get started!
Copic markers, airbrush, Express It Copic paper, craft mat.

Step 1:  Airbrush Y17 in 3 stripes across paper.  Leaving
the lower third white.

Step 2:  With V09 add 3 stripes right next to the yellow.

Step 3: With B29 spray all strips lightly to blend and
go heavier around the upper 3 edges creating a sky effect.

Step 4: Spray E23 to lower 3rd creating the ground.
Go back over with E18 around edges on lower 3rd to
create depth. This takes practice.  It took me a few tries
to get the look I wanted.
Step 5:  Now stamp your image.  

Here's the finished card!

I hope if you own a Copic airbrush you will give 
this easy technique a try!  Happy Holidays!
