Purple Mountains

Hello! Last week I came across  this photo and decided to use it as inspiration for a card.

I used circle Nestabilities to cut a circle for a mask and place it in position, then sponged Memento Lulu Lavender ink.

Then sponged Memento Grape Jelly.

I cut a mountain range from scratch paper and used repositionable tape. I place it upside down to do the reflection first, sponging with Memento Sweet Plum ink.

Then I flipped the mask and added a second mask to create the water line. I sponged Memento Grape Jelly for the mountains.

Then sponged Memento Paris Dusk.

I removed the mask and stamped the trees, from Follow Your Dreams, in the foreground with Stazon Jet Black ink.

I used my N1 and N3 Copic markers to add a tiny bit of shading at the shoreline to define it a bit.

Used my V04 Copic and white gel pen to add some ripples to the water.

I masked the water at the shoreline and used one of the tree lined bank images, from Life is Good, to stamp some trees.

I wanted more definition alone the shore, so I used my Grape Jelly Memento marker to add more shading.

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Wild Lilac card base. The sentiment is from Vogue Vases.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!
