My Mountain Scene

Every time I’m in the mountains, I try to think how I could stamp them.  This is what I came up with this afternoon.

Mountain_laatHere’s what I used:
Stamp Set:  Lovely as a Tree
Ink:  Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Basic Gray, Handsome Hunter Classic Stampin’ Pads; White StazOn
Paper:  Night of Navy, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Vellum card stock
Accessories:  Brayer, Stampin’ Sponges, Photo Corners Punch, Crafter’s Tool Kit

Now that I’ve found those Plums again, I’m really enjoying them!

For the main section (on the right), I masked a "mountain" and sponged Bashful Blue and Brocade Blue ink on the top of the card.  Then I added some Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and Basic Gray for the mountain, and Handsome Hunter at the bottom of the card.   I masked the sky, and stamped the tips of the trees in Pale Plum and Perfect Plum, then overstamped with Handsome Hunter. 

For the left side – I played with a "stamping off" technique.  I brayed Night of Navy ink over vellum card stock.  Then I stamped into the ink with a clean stamp (the tree).  (Tip:  Be sure to clean the stamp each time you stamp off.)  After it dried (and, I confess, I’m not the most patient person in the world.  I helped it along with my heat tool.), I overstamped some of the trees with White StazOn.

That’s all there is to it!  Remember, as always, you can click on the image to see more detail (and a better view of any goofs I made!).

Have a great day –
