Beach sympathy one layer card ~ masking & ink tutorial

 Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am sharing a one layer card with a beach theme and with sympathy sentiments.  I show techniques for masking and ink blending.

Heartfelt sympathy.  Praying for you.

The layers of ink combined with creative masking makes this one layer card come to life.  Many different stamps can be used to accent this tropical beach background.

Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for creating this one layer card beach scene.  To begin, trim a piece of cardstock a little larger than A2 size.  Mask a horizon using post-it tape.  Begin ink blending the water using torn cardstock for masking.  Next, mask the water area to blend a sunset sky scene.  Then, add more blending for the shoreline and the grassy areas.  Next, using the original Misti, stamp the sun over the partially masked area and also the clouds, the birds, trees and the sentiments.  Also, trim or die-cut the scene to fit.  Finally, layer the scene panel using foam or flat double-sided tape or glue, to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
