Over at the Craft Barn challenge 11 is to use the words Mountain or Mistake. Please visit their blog and join in if you feel like it. Am learning a lot, new quotes, new artists, it has been a blast so far, hope to see you there!
Found these lyrics by A-Ha from a song called Foot Of The Mountain.
But we could live by the foot of the mountain
We could clear us a yard in the back
Build a home by the foot of the mountain
We could stay there and never come back
Learn from my mistake
Leave what others take
Speak when spoken to
And do what others do.
Used an iCard size substrate which has been cut up from a mop up piece of card. The blue is from Dylusions spray Midnight. Added Pan Pastels Orange, Magenta and Dark Red Oxide to create the sunset. Added a layer of Old Gold Metallic Pan Pastel to add the night shimmer, left a little area without and stamped the stars as if they are trying to shoot out into the night sky.
Tore up a piece of paper to get the shape of the mountains and then coloured the area with black Archival Ink. Stamped the house with a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper (very old stamp)and Versamark ink then dusted over with Perfect Pearls.
Used a white Posca Pen to do the writing, must get a thinner nib as this isn’t very legible.
The completed scene and lyrics.
Stamped the reverse of the iCard with the house stamp and the accompanying tree stamp, also added the alium stamp from Clarity Stamps (one of my all time favourite images). Added all the details and stamped the date.
Am posting early as i don’t want to miss the deadline this time.
Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to reading your comments.
