Distress Oxide Blending An Ocean Sunset Using Masking

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sunset ocean card that I created using Distress Oxide ink blending and masking.

I started by taking the Simple Blend Oval stencil mask and taping it over a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I used painters tape to mask off the bottom half of the oval and then blended a sky on the top half. For the blending I used Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. I painted on some cloud shapes in the sky using clean water on a brush and then dabbing up the water with a paper towel.

I removed the tape covering the bottom half of the oval and then masked off the top half. I blended an ocean on the bottom using the same colors as the sky excluding the Squeezed Lemonade and adding in Black Soot. I removed all of the tape and masking and then placed the oval stencil piece over the top of my blended design. I taped down the Waves stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the top of that and went over it with Fallen Snow Glitter Glaze.

Once the texture paste was dry I added in highlights to the sky and ocean with a white gel pen. I also added some seagulls with a Copic multiliner. I cut the panel down to 3.75 x 5 and popped it up on a card base with foam tape.

For the sentiment I embossed a stamp from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment down into a strip and popped it up on the card. To finish the card up I went over the sentiment and some of the ocean with Wink of Stella glitter.

When I thought of summer I thought of watermelon. So I came up with this idea on how to create some watermelons using basic supplies. I pulled out a bunch of different colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and cut them with the nested oval dies from Hero Arts. The colors that I used were Green Leaf, Green Apple, White, Cotton Candy, and Lipstick Red.

After cutting the ovals, I cut each of them a second time so that I could in-lay each piece to make a watermelon. I used the larges oval die to cut a piece of scrap paper and then I used that as a base for the pieces. I glued them down with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I cut the watermelon into two pieces so that I could make two cards. .

I picked out two pieces of cardstock for my backgrounds. For one I used Cotton Candy cardstock and for the other I used Sea Glass. I stamped a sentiment from the One Cool Pineapple stamp set on both of them with Versafine Onyx Black ink I popped up that background on A2 card bases with foam tape and I also popped up the watermelons on the cards.

I added black sequins to the melons to look like seeds. I took out some doodlebug tiny heart stickers and added some of them around each of the sentiments. To finish up the cards I added dashed lines around the border of the backgrounds with a white gel pen.
