Mountain moonrisePosted: August 19, 2021 Filed under: mountain magic, Penny Black, picturesque, Stamped Landscapes | Tags: Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress inks 8 Comments
Here is the mountain stamp again, this time paired with the rushes and hills from the mountain magic set. Blue and brown is a favourite colour combo for me at present which works well as long as there are some pale tones or white in the mix.
Once again I began by creating the watercolour background (you can see the technique in the video here). I used diluted faded jeans, mowed lawn and gathered twigs distress inks. Once the background dried I stamped the mountain stamp in faded jeans ink taking care not to ink to the base of the stamp. At the foot of the mountains I stamped the smaller mountain stamp from ‘mountain magic’ set. I blended over both the tall and the short mountains in blue and brown inks.
Before stamping the rushes I blended water along the base of the low mountain image to soften the edge into the lake. Once that was dry I stamped the rushes in faded jeans, gathered twigs and mowed lawn. I created the soft moon image by placing a large drop of water on the panel to sit and dilute the ink. I carefully absorbed the droplet with paper towel and repeated the step.
Although not the brightest and prettiest colour scheme I am loving the moodiness of the scene. I feel like this is the kind of vista I might come across one day if I’m lucky!
That is the most AMAZING composition and ‘painting’! You can actually see the morning light just brushing the bottom of the mountains and cattails! It is Awesome in the true meaning of the word! Thank you, Heather, for blessing my morning with Creativity! ♥♥♥
Ooh totally different use of this stamp again Heather. This moonrise painting is so realistic i want to go there.
Ooh totally different use of this stamp again Heather. This moonrise painting is so realistic i want to go there.The rushes in the foreground give it great perspective, and I love the sandstone colour along the lakeside.
Another brilliant piece of artwork Heather and love the bulrushes in the foreground with water and the fabulous mountains in the distance, and the blue, green and brown work brilliantly here for a wonderful moody scene. x
WOW! I was on the fence about these stamps until I saw this one. Love the combined stamps and once again your use of color brings the scene to life. How beautiful this is, someplace I’d love to visit!
This is so amazing, Heather! Fantastic pairing of these wonderful stamp sets. Gorgeous scenic card, my friend! xx
Simply stunning. I love it.
