Howdy! Today I have two cards I created using the Heartfelt Creations Wilderness Retreat Collection. I got several of the sets because my husband and I love the mountains. For these particular cards my husband asked me to make a card with just mountains and the flying bird. When I started I just wasn’t seeing it. So off I went and got carried away creating a much different scene than he was wanting so I reeled it back in and created a second card like the wanted it. Sometimes your tangent has to happen so you can picture the original request. You card makers will probably get that.
Here is what he wanted.
For the background I did a watercolor wash with mostly blue with a few touches of purple. I used watercolor paper.
The mountains and trees are stamped, die cut from watercolor paper and colored with watercolors.
The bird is stamped, die cut from watercolor paper and also colored with watercolors.
The frame around the scene is die cut with ink blended over it.
When I went off on a tangent this is what I created which lead me to creating the more simple card.
A lot of the same things were done with this card. The background is watercolor wash. Everything is painted with watercolors except the fish. I used a metallic pen for that. The mountains are stamped directly on the background. The trees and lake are die cut and all one scene. The bird is also die cut. The frame on this one is not a woodgrain look and just die cut out of brown cardstock. The scene and frame is popped up with foam.
