Today is all about the outdoors, so I have a Greatest Journey Meets Mountain Air card for you.
My husband is an outdoor enthusiast who likes to hike in the mountains, so I made this card for him. Initially, I was just going to use the Enjoy the Journey suite, which includes the Greatest Journey stamp bundle, but I wanted a different color palette than what was in the suite. It consists of some pretty bright colors, none of which my husband would have enjoyed.
By making my own background, with Mountain Air, I was able to come up with a more neutral color scheme.
To create my background, I first stamped the sun, then put a mask over it. Next, I stamped the mountains and grassy plains, using another mask as I went. Once those were stamped, I colored the sky using a Small Blending Brush. I then removed the masks and colored the images with my Stampin’ Blends.
I made a similar card with this technique two years ago, and you can find it here.
The background was layered with some Textured Shimmer Paper and they were adhered to a Basic Black card base.
The sentiment was created the same way as the sky, with a Small Blending Brush. After it was finished, I stamped some trees, cropped them as well as the other layering pieces, and attached them all with glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I love how this card turned out, and my husband really enjoyed it as well. What do you think, I would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think of my Greatest Journey Meets Mountain Air card.
