Sailboat Summer cu 09467
Weekly-Favorite  x 10
Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC593) is reverse masking. Easy peasy & something I do a lot. On this little summer scene, I put the image into my Misti, stamped the sailboat, colored it w/ Copics, then masked it. I used a reverse mask for the horizon to cover the sky & sponge in the sea; put a round mask on the sun & flipped the horizon mask to cover the sea so I could sponge in the sky; then took off the sun mask & covered the sky w/ a reverse mask of the sun & sponged in the sun itself. Whew! That was easier to do than to explain. I even confused myself trying to write all that.

After all the sponging & masking was done, I added some white highlights w/ a gel pen, put it back into my Misti & over stamped w/ Versafine (all the coloring & sponging had dulled the original Memento lines quite a bit). I die cut it, added a narrow black layer then put a white die cut panel on top. The white panel has a square die cut to let the sailboat show thru & I rounded the corners. I was going for a kind of polaroid look for the frame.

Here are the Copics I used. Some of these were used to fill in little areas around the boat that were revealed when I took off the boat mask.

For my card, I’m using the sensational new Fishing Net Background & The Waves on the Sea sets.
I stamped the fishing boat scene and colored it w/ Copics, purposely leaving the sky a little streaky. Ever notice how the colors of a brilliant sunset can look streaky like that? I added some highlights w/ a white gel pen and die cut w/ a Spellbinders circle die. The shape reminded me of a porthole, so I added eyelets and little thread knots to continue that look. The net background was stamped tone on tone on the cobalt panel and 2 lg white eyelets and some tied white cord were added. The sentiment was cut out and I used a sm corner rounder on the ends. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs  Alumni Team’s bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.   You may want to start at the ODBD Blog so you won’t miss a thing! This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of ODBD  embossing plates! 
Embossing plates are a little different from embossing folders, but there are a number of techniques to really show them off. I love distressing the embossed card stock with a sanding block to bring out the little embossed fish. I made sure to use a white core card stock so that when embossed and sanded, the embossed fish would really show up. Before I embossed it, I also added a little ink to the c/s and afterwards, I really roughed up the edges.
I paired the embossed fish panel with this wonderful new ship from Surging Sea and sentiment from Smooth Sailing. Water colors were used on thin water color paper (think kid’s w/c pad), then the image was stamped and bleached. Since I was into distressing, I continued on w/ roughing up the edges and even tore a bit off one corner. The sentiment was die cut w/ a little pennant die and also distressed. The white x’s on the orange dp were added w/ a white gel pen. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
