Hello lovelies! Today I have another direct to paper tutorial for you ( Inspired by Zindorf). Like the last tutorial this one uses Tim Holtz distress inks that you can find in the store at Firefly Crafts.
Rub your ink pad along the top of your paper. Reminder: I use smooth cardstock as it is easier to run ink over). This one is Mustard seed but you can use any yellow.
I used broken China and ran along the bottom half of my paper . It is ok to leave some white areas and ideally you want some so it looks like waves.
I used Mowed lawn green in a sweeping motion upward from bottom so it looks like grass
I used Vintage photo on the corner because I thought it would look like an island but it did not. Haha . You can either do this step or skip
I used black soot to ink up my flowers and stamp on bottom. You can use whatever stamps you want for this or leave it as just the water.
I used both Candied Apple and Abandoned Coral and added some streaks to the sky.
Finish card as Desired
I added some birds with a black tip pen and added a sentiment from the Honey Bee Set Thankful.
