Hello there! I have a card to share today which features images from Country Roads. I also made a video to go along with it, or you can just skip the video and scroll down for the step by step photos if you prefer.
I started with a piece of 4 3/4 by 3 1/2 inch white cardstock, then sponged Gina K Sweet Corn ink. As you can see, I didn't sponge as smoothly as I normally try to do and this time went for a more splotchy look. To do this, I didn't tap off the ink on scratch paper as much, so it make heavier marks. I did still try to keep the sponge dauber moving at all times.
Next I added Gina K Sweet Mango ink. Again, I kept it pretty splotchy, working mainly from the sides and letting a lot of the yellow come through in the middle.
Then I added Gina K Honey Mustard ink. This time focusing more at the top and sides and creating some swipes of color to build up that cloud look.
I added Gina K Red Hot ink, working mostly on the bottom and lower sides. For this color, I wanted a smoother look, so I tapped off on scratch paper a lot more and built the color up slowly.
Then for even deeper color, I added Gina K Cherry Red.
I used Copic markers to draw in some wispy clouds. I started with E19 and drew some horizontal bands, then added E15, E97 and W1.
I cut a slightly wavy line in sticky notes to use as a mask and sponged Gina K Black Onyx ink along the bottom.
Removed the mask and stamped the windmill, from Country Roads, using Gina K Black ink.
Stamped the small thistle plant with black.
Then stamped the sentiment with black.
I layered with a piece of Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Pure Luxury Honey Mustard card base (5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches).
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a great day!
