Create a distress-inked scene with Isha Gupta!




My guest today is the lovely Isha Gupta of New Ideas. Isha has a great eye for colour and makes the cutest cards. She is an amazing stamper and has mad colouring skills. She is a whiz at using distress inks to create really awesome one-of-a-kind backgrounds. Today she shares how to create a scene using the masking technique with distress inks! She's also hosting a challenge with a wonderful prize for a lucky player! :)

Let's have a look at her beautiful work, shall we?




I’m excited and honored to share some of my creations with you all. When Yvonne invited me over,  lots of ideas came knocking at my door, which was confusing...lol. Finally, I decided on a small tutorial along with how and what got me inspired. As you may know, or maybe not, I live in Switzerland. One of the first things I associate with Switzerland are, of course, Chocolate, Cheese and not to forget the Swiss Alps. I got inspired by the Alps on this yogurt box:



 
I love stamping and trying out all kinds of techniques. However, here’s one of my all-time favorites: Creating scenes using Distress Inks. It requires a lot masking, but there are so many possibilities, you just have to plan a bit ahead. 



Step 1: Mask the grass area.



Step 2: Color with Distress Ink



Step 3: Cover the grass area and the sky (the unmasked part will be the mountains)



Step 4: Distress the mountains



Step 5: Cover mountain and grass area.



Step 6: Color the sky


Here's my completed card....

Now let’s all have some fun! Create a new project inspired by packaging. It would be cool if you could incorporate the featured technique as well, but it’s not a requirement. Play along for your chance to wina $15 gift certificate to the Lil Inker Shop.
