Creating a Distress Oxide ink Background | New Art Impressions Challenge

Hello Ai Fans! 

For the Rustic/ Americana challenge I first thought of the barn from the Barnyard Cubbie set. Reminds me of seeing all those large old barns while on a road trip! I paired my barn with the WC Mountain set too. These mountains make for a perfect background setting. I hope you enjoy the card video process below. 

I stamped the mountains that are the farthest away in a light gray ink and the ones closer in a medium gray ink. I also used some masking paper from Inkadinkado. You can find this masking paper in the Ai shop! After stamping the mountains on to the masking paper I used scissors to fussy cut out the images. Then I layered those over top of the stamped images on my card front. This made it much easier to ink blend with Distress Oxide inks. 

I wanted to keep the rest of the ground layer simple. Using two more Distress Oxide inks and a strip of masking tape, I created straight edges to ink blend Peeled paint and Frayed Burlap. Before blending the Peeled Paint ink I did use masking paper again. This time stamping and fussy cutting the fence image. Same kind of technique that I did for the mountains. 

I used the coordinating die for the barn and die cut it. Then placed it on my card front. This is a cubbie stamp and die set but I decided to keep all of the windows pieces and glue them back into their respectable places. So none of the doors or windows will open with this design. I like to mix it up and use these cubbie designs in different ways. 

I can't wait to see what you create for the Challenge Rustic/ Americana. Thank you so much for joining me today! Happy Stamping
