Morning, I wanted to share a card, made using Leonie's Dies in a different way. If you did miss the Launch shows for Leonie's Stamp and Die collection on on Hochanda, It is still available on their website via the Catch Up facility on the TV Schedule (8th & 9th June). Don't wait too long as it will soon disappear.
To start I cut the 'Entwining Branches' Die from copier paper to make myself a mask. Then positioned and secured to my Velvet cardstock, which measured 6'' Square.
I built up my landscape first, using a selection of distress inks and masks. You can use torn copier paper to make masks for the hills and mountains. For this I used: Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and a small touch of Aged Mahogany. I blended the colours to leave very pale colours at the bottoms of the hills and mountains to add a feeling of depth.
I then added my trees to the landscape sizing them to add to the perspective of the land. The are tree stamps Drawn by Sheen Douglas.
I positioned a circle mask, which would become my sun and coloured the sky using mainly scattered Straw, blending the edges with a little Wild Honey Distress Ink.
I removed the mask from the sun and added a small amount of Scattered Straw Distress ink to take away the starkness of the white. I then added the 'Be Happy' stamp. I finally matted this onto Satin Gold card before mounting onto my base card.
I hope you like today's project along with the step by step I have included. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and I hope you will be back again, Bye for now, Take care and hope to see you tomorrow for more.xxx
