I did a fall scene with the Serendipity Amish looking stamps with mountains done in fall colors. I have been wanting to do some calligraphy of the quote "The mountains are calling and I must go" and use it with airbrushed mountains.
I cut my mask for the overall shape using a Spellbinders die. I used double stick tape that I have then put on my jeans to reduce stickiness as an adhesive. For smaller masks, I use the sticky portion of Post It Notes. First, I mask the mountain area and then airbrush the sky.
Next I move the mask down and do a distant layer of mountains. Since it is light blue, it is ok if some overspray goes on the sky.
I skip down one layer of mountains and begin masking the sky and distant mountains as I am using darker colors. I go back and add a light blue to that second layer of mountains. This isn't the best example in the world and I have not done my calligraphy, but it will give you an idea of how it is done if you are interested. You could do the same effect with ink on sponges if you don't airbrush.
Now, how do I get all this blue ink off of my fingers and fingernails....LOL!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
