Well here is a little tag I rustled up for your pleasure,
So stamp the Forest Ridge stamp onto the Gelli Plate
with Stormy Sky, like so:
Lay a large tag onto the trees,
lift the print and drop it down again a little,
to pull a second ghost print.
Use the lines on the Clever Megamount for precision position.
(say that when you’re 3 sheets to the wind!)
This is what I got. Nothing too spectacular,
but let’s keep going!
Stamp a couple of ridges to the front with Denim Adirondack.
So now you’ve got the mirror images to the back, faded, and the sharper images to the front.
Now comes the simple magic.
Tear a sheet of copy paper to make a hill, and use your stencil brush to add – wait for it –
BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS
If you singalong, too, you will like your artwork even more!
Add the beautiful Bird verse in Denim.
Add a couple of crows,
which double up beautifully as mountain birds.
Look, if you use your imagination,
you can even see the shadow the bird is throwing!
Dust the edges with Denim Adirondack on a stencil brush.
There we are. All done.
On the trail of the lonesome pine….
In the pale moonshine our hearts entwine,
Where she carved her name, and I carved mine;
Oh, June, like the mountains I’m blue –
Like the pine, I’m lonesome for youuuuoooooooo;
in the Blue ridge mountains of Virginia,
on the trail of the lonesome pine…
I remember we played this at a Cowden Retreat a couple of years ago. It was fantastic. 32 women crafting away and singing this little ditty!
Come on! Singalong! It’s good for the soul!
