Lakeside Mountain

How did this happen? Another scenic card just snuck in while I wasn’t looking! I think it might be the fault of this mountain stamp, ‘Picturesque’. It is possibly the perfect stamp to put behind all other scenic stamps! And I haven’t even touched on winter scenes yet!

I stamped the mountains first in hickory smoke distress ink, painted inside the whole area with water and then added some chipped sapphire here and there. Once the ink dried I stamped the ‘quietude stamp in chipped sapphire, rustic wilderness and rusty hinge. I painted chipped sapphire in the sky and the lake and then painted more trees along the shore in the distance and pulled some of the ink into the lake to look like reflections.

Doesn’t it look relaxing, like dusk with cloud cover? Hope you have a lovely weekend.

    All there is to say again is Wow..I, too, love the mountains and water. I am especially interested in skies right now due to stamping my Christmas scenes and need a good idea for this.
    Thank you

    This definitely has the look of the time between dusk and dark and love that there is some brightness just above the mountains and that little bit of light at the front right Heather and such pretty foliage which adds depth to the scene. A beautiful scene as always. x

    I just used this idea for my son’s 60th birthday card. He lives in Las Vegas so Lake Mead is near with desert hills.

    WOW! I was on the fence about purchasing those mountains but this gorgeous card just sold me. Love your use of color on them giving them such wonderful dimension! Your composition with Quietude is fabulous and something I’d love to try! Thanks for the inspiration!
