It’s time for the SUO157 “All Kinds of Weather” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!
I love most types of weather (I am not too fond of hurricanes or tornadoes) and decided to try to depict a cloudy day using images from In the Meadow along with a sentiment from Rose Wonder.
I also incorporated the Splitcoaststamper’s CAS394 “One with Nature” Challenge into the design.
I hope you will stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects as well as the SCS gallery- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the deer image from In the Meadow with Basic Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Mask the deer and stamp the mountains in the background (also stamp the mountains onto scrap paper and create a mask).
Mask the mountains and stamp the mountain image again, repeating to build up the mountain range.
Stamp the tree image along with the grass and flowers in the corner.
Use an AquaPainter™ with ink from the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Marker to watercolor the sky (I usually scribble the marker onto an acrylic block or craft mat and pick up the ink with the AquaPainter™).
Use Marina Mist for the mountains, Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi for the meadow and grass, Tip Top Taupe for the deer.
Use the actual markers to define the areas and add shadows.
De-static the panel with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Versamark™, stamp onto the panel and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder.
Trim the panel and mount onto Whisper White cardstock, trim again and mount onto Soft Suede cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
To finish off the card, add the white highlights to the fawn and flowers with the White Gel Pen and use the Clear Wink of Stella® marker to add shimmer to the mountains.
