Hugs from Afar Scenic Card

#sarasherlock Distress Oxide Inks Hugs from Afar Word Topper Die Ink Blending Life Changing Blender Brushes Much Love Sara Sara Sherlock The Best Hugs Ever Water Coloring Scene Building Stencil

Hello!  It's Sara, from Much Love, Sara.  I have a fun slim line card to share with you today.  This card features two ink blended backgrounds, with some of the adorable critters from The Best Hugs Ever Stamp Set.  


I started by stamping the critters in Black Hybrid Ink, and quickly colored them in with my Polychromos pencils.  Then I die cut them out with the coordinating dies.  While my die cutting machine was out, I also die cut the Slim Line Hugs from Afar Word Topper Die from black card stock.  To change the layout of the die, I laid it on a strip of 8.5" card stock, with the words in the center, then left the left edge hanging off of the bottom plate, so the edge would not cut.  Then I could use my trimmer to cut the rest of the strip out.   I did not add a subtitle to this strip, however, wanted a small detail, so I stamped and white heat embossed the small hearts from the stamp set.  



To create the backgrounds for my critters, I used the Water Coloring Scene Building Stencil, turned so the stencil was horizontal.  I used a small bit of painters tape to create the "hill".  Then I ink blended some Distress Oxide Inks, using my Life Changing Blender Brushes.  For the icy scene, I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.   Before removing the stencil, I splattered water on the background.  


To create the warmer savannah background, I used Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.  I sprayed water onto a wadded up paper towel, and dabbed that over the sky area to create soft clouds.  
Once the ink blended panel was dry, I assembled the card, and adhered it to a white card base.
I hope you enjoyed today's project.  Find more cards using products from the recent February Release over on my blog.  Have a fantastic Tuesday! 

Much Love,
