Oh my, that field of lavender is gorgeous isn't it? Beautiful colors and I had the idea that I wanted to make some misty mountains with these colors using the Waterfront stamp set--similar to this card from a couple weeks ago. Whenever I need a kickstart of inspiration I always head to Pinterest and a search for "mountain perspective drawing" yielded this fabulous photo and my idea was born:
It took several tries on scrap paper to get the look of the mountains the way that I wanted--dark in the front and fading out in the distance. This really gives depth to the image without adding any extra layers. This is just one panel of cardstock! The front row of mountains is stamped full-strength in Elegant Eggplant--overlapping the mountain image to make the mountain larger. The second row of mountains is full-strength Wisteria Wonder, again overlapping to make it appear larger. The third row is Wisteria Wonder stamped off once and the final row is stamped off twice. Tranquil Tide stamped off once or twice with another image from Waterfront created the forest floor . The trees were stamped full-strength in Tranquil Tide. Finally, I added soaring birds from the High Tide set and a sentiment from Flourishing Phrases both in Elegant Eggplant. The whole front panel is popped up on a thick Whisper White base.
Thanks for peeking in on my card today...I hope you liked it! Be sure to check out the rest of the loveliness over at The Paper Players. My teammates have outdone themselves with LeAnne's colors this week! Perhaps you'll be inspired to play along with us before the challenge closes on Friday, April 13th at Noon (PST). Have a great week!
