Today I am doing a tutorial of a simple Scenic Background using Distress Ink. I used the Prickley Pear Gone Fishing Stamp. Here is how it's done...
First you use a scrap paper that has a straight edge. Lay the paper
across a piece of white card stock. Then sponge the bottom half of the
paper with Faded Jeans. With the straight edge still in place, sponge
along the horizon with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
Next, cut out a circle and place it onto the paper with it overlapping
the horizon. Then use a cloud stencil to start sponging around the
clouds and the moon. Use the Faded Jeans for the clouds.
Remove the moon mask and sponge a cloud over the moon giving it the illusion of peeking out behind the clouds.
With the cloud stencil still in place, use a paper that has a circle
cut out of it as a mask to add a hit of yellow over the moon. I used
the Scattered Straw for this. Finally, stamp the Gone Fishing at the
bottom of the card. I reinked the cattails to fill in along the bottom.
Then I stamped a sentiment onto a white strip of paper and placed this
over the bottom of the scene. This hides the uneven stamping along the
bottom!! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I will be back with
another Scenic Background Tutorial in a few weeks.
