Blending Solution Video

Todays card has many fun elements in it. I played along in the limited supply challenge at SCS and this is what I came out with. I have been having a lot of fun with the new Sara England stamps at CHF. This one in particular I can be really creative with that large sail.
Here are all the deets of the card and I will go into the specifics on the sail:
Sailing with my dog (Sara England), Encouragement Expressions (Mona Lisa Moments), Weave (Backgrounders) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso Adirondack Dye Ink, Snow Cap Pigment Ink (Ranger)
Suede Brown Light, Medium, Dark (Prism)
Solar White Cardstock (Neenah)
Copic Markers
AirBrush System (Copic)

Paisley Impressionabilities (Spellbinders)
Round Dies (Spellbinders)
Threading Water Punch (Fiskars)

Here is a close up of the sail, click on the photo and it gets even closer! I showed this technique in the video below on achieving some texture in the sail. I used copic blending solution in combination with my background stamp to get a stunning canvas look....way fun!
I love how the blender solution also gives the sail a bit of a water stained look too!

Hope you enjoy the video and have a great weekend!
