Ai - Happy Retirement!

Wednesday, January 8, 2020
Hello Ai fans!!

 I am over on the Art Impressions blog today using the newly released stamp set called Happy Trails.  This stamp set is so much fun. Tomorrow you will see another card using this set for the current challenge going on.
I knew as soon as I saw this set I wanted a chill, laid back retirement card.  I think I achieved it with this card; wouldn't you agree??
I started by stamping the images all at the same time with my Misti. I lined up the palm tree, the sentiment, and beach bum and stamped them at once.  I then stamped them a second time onto my masking paper and covered up my palm tree and beach bum.
Ok, here is where the magic happens.  I took another piece of masking paper and made a horizon line.  So I have the bottom portion of my card covered along with my palm tree and beach bum.  I ink blended some blue in to emulate the sky. From there I reversed the direction of my straight piece of masking paper and covered up the blue I just applied.  I ink blended some brown to emulate the sand. Peel off all your masking paper and reveal the magic scene and ares to Copic color. From here you Copic color your images and that's it, you are done.

Here is the full card again.  Isn't a simple one layer card all you need sometimes? I am so please with how this turned out.  You know you can save your cut out masked images to reuse another time, right?

Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by please come back again soon and see what I have been up to.
