Thank you for stopping by. Well, Monday’s Blog is Trees and Flowers, remember?
So here’s a quickie, using the
very versatile Forest Ridge Claritystamp
Tonto –the Lone Ranger
This is a very simple exercise in building up a landscape.
Stamp the Rope Frame in the centre, in Black Archival.
Stamp the Forest Ridge in the centre using black Archival ink, too, but before you plant it, blot either end of the inky stamp on copy paper well, to get rid of some ink.
Now re-ink the Forest Ridge stamp in black, blot on copy paper and stamp either side of the Rope Frame.
You will find that the Forest Ridge stamp tessellates; it joins up seamlessly either side, so it can go on and on and on.
Great for a landscape!
Place a moon mask in the centre, and tear a piece of copy paper, using the hill side of the NEW Clarity blending Mat.
Cover up the land and load one of your fantastic, super duper Clarity Stencil Brushes with Mountain Rose ink.
Now, before we proceed, I need a show of hands here! It’s all well and good me piping on about how super these brushes are to use, how they are super smooth, no bristles, wash up beautifully, etc. etc. But I need some back up! Please, if you have our brushes, leave a comment giving your opinion of them.
I know they are brilliant;
I just would like you to endorse what I am saying. xx
Anyway, dust a lovely Mountain Rose sunset or sunrise into the centre area, and gradually lighten the dusting towards the edges.
Move the paper mask to slot into the hills as you do this.
Tear a piece of copy paper now and add a few light hills with a make up sponge in Caramel and Pesto. These colours, Mountain Rose, Pesto and Caramel are a very good combination for landscapes in general.
Stamp The Lone Ranger in the front, for perspective.
Perfect for a Male card. Plenty of room to stamp a sentiment to the right of the frame.
Off to work.
