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.
