Played with the new Splitcoaststampers tutorial using art masking fluid as a resist and my distress inks. I tried the same image twice just for practice. My handwriting is awful and I think I need a much smaller brush to write nicely next time—or maybe not write at all, but I did enjoy the process. I used two series of Distress Inks on both sets of images: greens and blues. I started with Shabby Shutters, then Bundled Sage, then Peeled Paint, and of course, my newest addition, Mowed Lawn. For the blues I started with Tumbled Glass, added (you got it!) Salty Ocean, and, finally, Stormy Sky. The seahorse was another Distress Ink—Worn Lipstick. For the sand on the bottom of the ocean I inked some Brushed Corduroy and then used Vintage Photo around the other three sides to give some depth to the image. My Perfect Layers tools came out and I made two 1/8-inch mats. All I need to do now is mount them on a card base and send off.
