Pop of Pink

Hello!I found this photo that I loved and decided to use it as inspiration for my card.

To start, I masked a circle, cut from sticky notes, using Nestabilities. Then I sponged Memento London Grey.

I removed the circle, then used the sticky note the circle had been cut from to mask the area around the circle. I sponged the center with Memento Rose Bud.

Then I sponged a little Memento Lilac Posies.

I removed the previous mask and created a new one by tearing sticky notes. I used that to mask the sky and then sponged more Memento London Fog.

Removed that mask and stamped the mountain, from Mountain Wilderness, using Memento Tuxedo Black.

I used Copic markers to color in the mountain, starting with N5.

Added N3.

I added some shading with N7 and used N1 to blend.

I stamped the row of trees using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, but stamped off on scratch paper first to lighten the image.

Used torn sticky notes to mask again and sponged Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Then stamped the large silhouette trees using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Moonlit Fog. The card base is Pure Luxury Smokey Slate and 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches.

This is beautiful! I have a question, If you could only buy ONE of the Gina K stamp sets with the trees which would you start with? There is also a Stampin Up set with the trees, and I don't know which set to get or which is the most versitile? Thank you! Christy

@ Christy -

That is a tough question. I think I would say Tree Silhouettes (a Gina set). Among mine, I think my faves with trees for scene building are Life is Good and this new set Mountain Wilderness. Sounds like I might need to make a set featuring all my favorite tree images. :)

Thank you for the reply! Yes! Please make a "Tree Set" with all of your favorite images in one set! I think it would be so popular! I love the concept of the Stampin Up Lovely as a tree set, but your trees look so much more realistic and fun to use! Just curious, if you did make a set when would we be able to purchase it? Maybe include tall grass too? You are the greatest! CHRISTY
