Peace & Love
Here is the first in a series of cards I made with the new stamps from Serendipity Stamps. I have a lot of new Inkadinkado stamps to play with too, so now I will get busy with those.
I have always loved the look of mountains in backgrounds (especially in real life!). I stamped all three of these stamps on one piece of paper (can we say simplify?) to create a scene and the verse all together on beige cardstock. I simply (catching a theme here?) tore paper to make a mask and then airbrushed the layers with Copics. Yes, I could have used chalks or inks stippled but the airbrush is so quick and I have it handy, so it is my first choice. I added eyelets and some black button thread on the side, layered it on a couple of pieces of cardstock and it was done. I did add a few leaves with a marker.
So many of the cards we see on blogs have layers on layers and intricate work....not this one. The airbrushing gives you depth and a look of layers, but this was one of the quickest and most simple of the fourteen I made with the new Serendipity stamps and I think it is one of my favorites.
This has me in the mood to see some mountains, so I am heading to the cabin, but I will post all the cards before I leave. Thanks for visiting!
