Hi! I'm back for the second time today with my card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, which has a summer theme. My card also meets the themes at Curtain Call and City Crafter, so I'm linking up there too. Inkspirational has a masking theme and as I did two different types of masking on this card, I'm adding my card.
This is a one layer card and involved masking off a strip on a white card base before sponging Antique Linen ink for the sand and Tumbled Glass ink for both the sea and the horizon, using a much lighter touch for the sky. I also used a cloud mask for the sky. Once I was finished sponging, I used a white gel pen for the waves and a Copic marker to add texture to the sand.
Once I was happy with the image, I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment in black ink.
A very simple card but I hope it evokes a feeling of peace while drinking coffee on a warm morning with a view like this :)
Thanks for visiting.
