This is such a great little set - not only do you get Baseball Hanna - but you get four other images - a baseball mitt, a cleat, a catcher's mask, and a base. How cool, huh!? For this card - I masked Hanna onto the base and then masked the entire image and used the Copic Airbrush System to airbrush the sky and the dirt on. Hanna was colored in with Copic markers as well. The felt flowers are by Making Memories and the little baseball brads in the centers of them are from Hobby Lobby. I did some machine stitching for the flower stems. The sentiment is from the "Things Hanna Would Say" set. This baseball set - along with the other new sets - will be released on Friday, July 4th. We are having a release party for these new sets on Thursday night - from 9-11 PM EST over on the Hanna Stamps forum at SplitCoast Stampers - hope to see you there!! And be sure to check out the other Hanna Stamps Design Team members blogs for other sneak peeks - I will be back with more tomorrow!! Thanks for stopping by!!

This card is the second card I made with my airbrush system - my first card (with Plane Riley) is being displayed at Papertrix in Nashville - I'll have to see if I have a good pic of it to share with you. The card above is for the Friday challenge on the Hanna Stamps forum over on SplitCoast Stampers - the challenge is to use the masking technique on your card. I am a newbie to masking - but I can already seeing it becoming an addicting technique - I love the little scenes you can create!! If you love to mask - I also reccommend getting your hands on some Eclipse Artist Masking Tape - it rocks!! I got some at Papertrix today and it is sooooo nice to use! I used the new Car Riley for the main image on my card - and then I masked the Stop Sign and the Exhaust "poof" on the back of the car - both of these stamps are from the Route 66 Hanna Stamps set. I then masked the entire image and used the Copic Airbrush system to airbrush the sky and the road onto the image. The background paper is from the Die Cuts With a View Summer stack and I added a little stitching around the edges. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby as are the little photo turn and screw brad. The sentiment is from the "Things Riley Would Say" sentiment set. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
