Calendar challenge 7 - July

As usual I didn't have exactly the right equipment for the challenge.  So I used ink from my ink pads to create the background with the Gelli Plate and a piece of acetate.  I had to spritz the ink first so it would move  around.

First Anniversay

I made this card for my daughter and son-in-law's first wedding anniversary. 
I used an idea from Sue Wilson's blog and adapted it to suit.  The dies are all SW.  Montreal, Laurel leaves and complete Camellia petals.

Clarity challenge 41 - Days out

I stamped the Sketchy Lady and the Diamond carriage and horse first using Black Archival and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then stamped the sentiment using the letterbox kit.
For the sky I used Stonewashed and the cloud mask.  I really like how the card gives little blobs of texture.
Next I created the castle and the hills using the landscape mask, Espresso and Lettuce inks.  Not forgetting the torn paper for the hills!
The foreground was made using the Dotty Wave and Stone Wall stencils randomly and Espresso and Vintage photo inks.
I painted the lady with Stonewashed and Lettuce inks, both to make her stand out and tone with the background.
A few finishing touches - the grass verge using a stamp from Trees and their mantles, shadows with some diluted Vintage Photo ink and a touch of colour on the bottom of each letter to match their background.
