Purple Mountain Majesty- Two Challenges in One!
I wanted to share with you the card that I created for the Splitcoaststampers’ Virtual Stamp Night JUN14VSNG “The Hills Are Alive” along with the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC306 Color Challenge.
If you have not visited the sites above, I hope you will take the time to check them out- great ideas and inspiration from all!
I had one of my favorite places on my mind when I created this sponged mountain scene- Shenandoah National Park. My husband and I love to visit Skyline Drive and the hills are definitely "alive" and are gorgeous!!
To create this card:
Create a mask using sticky notes to create the skyline area and a circle for the moon. Lay the moon and the skyline notes down onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Coastal Cabana Classic Ink onto the sky area, then using another Sponge Dauber, add a bit of Perfect Plum Classic Ink.
Remove the masks, and place over the recently sponged sky area. Add a few more masks at the lower part of the card and sponge Perfect Plum Classic Ink for the mountains.
Again, lift up the mountain masks and mask the recently sponged area and apply Wild Wasabi Classic Ink for the foreground.
Using Lovely As A Tree, ink the tree line stamp using Perfect Plum Classic Ink and re-apply the masks before stamping the trees over the mountain area.
Mask part of the foreground and stamp the larger pine tree from Lovely As A Tree using Perfect Plum Classic Ink and stamp over the Perfect Plum using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink,
Trim the panel and mount onto Coastal Cabana cardstock, trim again and adhere to Basic Black cardstock. Add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon to the corners and mount the panel onto another piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock. Trim the panel again and adhere to the Basic Black card base.
Stamp the sentiment from Love and Sympathy using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the XL Oval Punch. Adhere the sentiment over two additional ovals (punched from the same XL Oval Punch and overlapped to create a frame).
Mount the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add three Pearls to finish off the card.
