Peaceful Scene

Hello!  This is Donna once again for Dies R Us and today I have a very serene scenic card for you. For this card I used the WinterSports die by Find It Trading.  Many dies by Find It Trading are geared for the gentleman in your life.  However, this die in particular, can also lend itself to a sympathy card, birthday or thinking of you, etc.


You will need your base card stock measuring 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, folded in half for an A2 card.  One white piece at 4 x 5-1/4 and your die cuts.



To begin, place a 1” mask where you would like the moon to be.  Place your mountains where you’d like them to be and draw a light pencil line underneath and remove mountains for later.  Sponge your evening sky colors using Squeezed Lemonade first followed by Orange Marmalade and blend your inks. Remove the mask.





Next create your blended water using Broken China, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch.  Create movement in the water by using a white gel pen.




Affix your dies, and adhere to card front. Note:  I changed to a white card base at the last minute to better showcase the colors of the scene.  I also put in a few birds using a micron pen to add more interest.
