I have a friend at work who loves to give everyone weather updates. It doesn't matter if it is snowing, raining or 90 degrees out. I don't even need a weather app since I know I will get the latest updates ... lol. So when his birthday came around I wanted to create a card with a mountain scene. I'm calling this one Mount Shasta.
On a piece of Kromekote glossy paper I stamped the mountains in StazOn Dove Gray. I did a little masking with a Post-it note around the base of the mountains knowing that I was going to stamp trees in the foreground. The trees were stamped in StazOn Olive Green.
Next, I stamped some faint clouds using Bashful Blue ink then colored in the mountains slightly with ColorBox Whisper Grey and Going Gray. The background forest was colored in Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy. I wanted to give the perspective that you are up high looking down upon the forest.
The inside sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and embossed with clear embossing powder. Some matching trees were stamped in the corner.
A big happy birthday to my friend. He also received a gift card tucked inside this creation :-)
