Another visit due to Popular demand

Morning, I've had quite a few requests to share this card, I'm didn't understand how to back link it so I have copied it for today's post. I made this card using Leonie's Dies back in June. It's from the Stamp and Die collection she launched on on Hochanda. I am so chuffed that so many of you liked it, the step by step is below for anyone new wanting to know how I made it.

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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and I hope you will be back again. I do have exciting times ahead and will let you all know as soon as I can. 

Bye for now, Take care and Happy Crafting xxx
