Welcome everyone! Today I’m sharing a card\video on how I created an ombre desert sky by ink blending distress oxides.
I have a video showing you how I created this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
The colors I used for ink blending are Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxides. I applied the ink using Life Changing Blender Brushes onto white cardstock.
To get the speckled look, I spritzed clean water onto the background and dabbed up with a paper towel.
For images, I used the Llama Tell You and Year Ten stamp sets from Lawn Fawn. I stamped in Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers on Lawn Fawn white cardstock.
The copic colors I used are W5, W4, W2, W0, W00, E11, E00, RV14, RV13, RV17, BG32, BG49 for the Llama. For the cactus I used a unique combination of copic markers including BV29, BG49, G17, G05, YG06, YG00.
Some other elements I used to complete my scene are the Stitched Hillside Die which I die cut from Paper Bag cardstock and added a little of Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide to the tops. I also used the Circle Stackables die to create the sun which I die cut from Vanilla Malt cardsock and vellum.
For the little clouds you can use any stamp set from Lawn Fawn that has clouds but I used the Butterfly Kisses stamp set.
I hope you’ll give this a try! I love how these colors blended together.
I even decorated the inside of the card!
