This cool sunset overlooking the ocean is easier to ink blend than it looks. Using distress ink and blending tools, you can achieve this effect too!

Starting out with my favorite cardstock for blending, I determined where I wanted my sun to be, and added some yellow ink. From there, I went on to add pink, purple, and blue inks, because I wanted it to be reminiscent of a west coast sunset where you get a big mix of colors in the sky. I started with the sky first in lighter colors.

I die cut a circle mask for my sun. Then I masked off where my horizon line would be to started ink blending the colors on the bottom for a “reflection” of what was going on in the sky.

I has a little “oopsies” moment with the masking tape, you can see that happened in the video below. I then added a sentiment from this stamp set and I was done.
