Stretch Out Your Stamps/Dies With DT Susan

CDD DT Susan here with another CDD tutorial. Today's tutorial is about stretching your stamps. I adapted Lydia Fiedler's tutorial on making outline images into silhouette images to make an ocean scene with the CDD Jawsome set. I used the Stitched Scallops border to create the border between the sky and the sea using several distress inks. Here is my card:

Here is my You Tube video:

Distress Inks Used:
Sky: Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans Distress Oxide, Chipped Sapphire. Tumbled Glass and Black Soot
Sea: Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire

First I cut the border from masking paper and a half circle out of masking paper as well. I used Bristol smooth card stock for the base.

I then added 2 layers of ink blending for both the sky and the sea. See distress inks used at top.

Next, I simply colored in my line image with a Copic 100 marker. Unfortunately, I double stamped the image so you can still see the lines. Next time I will use second generation stamping or a lighter ink. Then on the side of the shark closest to the moon I added a white line using my gel pen to indicate a highlight on the image from the moon.

To finish the project off, I added a drop shadow for the image and white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black card stock using my Misti - you can use any stamp positioner you would like to. Of course, I finished it off with some clear droplets and two googly eyes for my shark lol!!!

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you found this tutorial useful!
