Home On The Range

High on my "To Do" list this week was to create a third card for my Brayering 201 class coming up soon and I decided to play with new in colours Pool Party and Island Indigo.

I had originally intended to add some leaves in the foreground, but once I had done my masking for the mountains, I changed my mind. The reason for that is when I looked at it, it reminded me of the Blue Mountains on a hazy day and how they got their name. So I simplified by just adding some birds (from the Sail Away stamp) and here you have my home!

I just ADORE these two new colours and can see me getting a LOT of use out of them over the next two years!

Materials used:

  • stamps - Sail Away
  • card - whisper white, pool party, island indigo
  • inks - pool party, island indigo
  • other - brayer, dimensionals, scrap paper, sponge dauber, black marker

Thanks for stopping in.
