I am digging these new Stamp-It images! Love the possibilities! I started this little scene by stamping the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock for Alcohol Markers. I then applied distress inks with a blender tool and foam, pulling the color from outside in and leaving some highlight in the center. I used the lightest blue first and applied to both sky and water, I ran a light line all the way across the horizon in the sky. Next, I came in with the darker blue to the water only.
For the sky, I sponged in a some lavender color and then went back in with a cloud template (made with a punch) and added some puffy clouds. I sponged in a few streaks of lavender into the water, as the water reflects the color of the sky. TIP: With this technique, you are building color with a light touch. When you press too hard, you'll have foam sponge prints. Ask me how I know? :o)
To finish it off, I adhered to a cool background I made with Spectrum Noir refill-inks. Click here to see how I made it.
Thank you for visiting!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
