Mountain SunsetPosted: August 18, 2021 Filed under: Penny Black, picturesque, Stamped Landscapes | Tags: Catherine Pooler inks, Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress inks 7 Comments
I’ve been enjoying this new mountain stamp from Penny Black, it’s aptly named ‘picturesque’. Although it works beautifully behind other stamps I wanted to show it alone first because when paired it with a sunset sky it really didn’t need more.
The wonder of mountains and sunsets reminds me of the mighty God who made and sustains this earth so I chose a sentiment that gives me the same encouragement.
To create this card I swiped a piece of watercolour paper through faded jeans, kitsch flamingo and scattered straw distress inks. While it dried I sprinkled salt on it to add some texture and pattern.
This is a larger card than my usual but the mountain stamp is also large so it spanned the 6¼” width. I stamped in Catherine Pooler juniper ink and decided not to blend over the stamping. The pinks of the watercolour looked like the sunset reflecting on snow so I kept the mountain crisp and added the sentiment from PB ‘inspirational sentiments’ in the same ink.
Tomorrow’s post will include this stamp paired with other scenic stamps for a moonlit farm view.
You have outdone yourself. You always make beautiful and interesting cards, but this is spectacular. Many thanks.
You are right Heather, this image, paired with the beautiful sunset sky needs nothing else. Well done; it is good to know when to leave something alone and let it stand for itself.
Beautifully done with this gorgeous stamp! I look forward to see what you add to it. This looks like another much have stamp. What a dramatic sky you created!
Gorgeous card and the scripture verse is perfect.

This is one of the best and most detailed mountain stamps I have seen and looks spectacular paired with these two colours Heather to make a really wonderful sunset. x
Fabulous – that background sky is amazing!
