Mountain scene

It’s hubby’s birthday in a few days but I know he won’t be checking my blog so it’s safe to post his card. Men can be tricky but not if you get Lovely As A Tree – I’ve used it over and over again for masculine cards, as well as for Christmas cards and much more.

Out came the brayer for this one as I wanted to create an alpine mountain scene. So about a million torn post-it notes later, I came up with this.

I masked the mountains and brayered the sky using Bashful Blue. Then I masked the mountains again, this time masking the tops of them and chalked below using a combination of Going Grey and Certainly Celery.

Then I just stamped the trees on top, stamping off to get paler trees, too.

Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
