A big card and a big deal

Morning everyone.  How are you.  Wow, did you guys hear the rain last night, terrible, but my tomatoes are doing a happy dance, rain water ..... they look all perky this morning.

In todays post

  • CARD FOR MY DAD
  • BIG OFFER 


CARD FOR MY DAD

Anyway today's card took me a whole day to create.  Its for my Dad, Francis, and I wanted to create something special.  I knew I wanted to use the reflection technique, I also knew I wanted to use the Traveller set, and I wanted to create a picture.

Boy you should see the mess I made in the craft room.  That lovely grid paper that SU sells is covered in trial runs ........ six to be exact.  Couldn't get it right ........ trees in the wrong place, perspective was all wrong ........ each time I started again ........ it was in my head, so it was going to be on paper ........

Anyway lots of paper and coffee later here is the finished result.


First I stamped the Train from the Traveller Set

The the trees from the Lovely as a Tree set which was double stamped


Then I worked out where the pond was and did the two reflections, the train and the trees


Then I stamped in my gorgeous clouds in soft sky.

lastly I water coloured with my classic ink pads and watercolour pen, blending in grass and hills, creating train tracks and shadows.    


And of course giving lots of colour and depth to the pond with all the gorgeous blues and greens we have

The inside was matt and layered like the front.  Soft sky onto Early Espresso.  I am loving this colour combo.  

I hope you like it.............. he loved it ....
