Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

Mountain Majesties

I love nature scenes. I think they are perfect themes for masculine cards.

The "nature scene" on this card, as well as the sentiment, were made with stamps from GKD. The birds are from Stampscapes. The card stock is also from GKD and the ribbon is from my personal stash.

I stamped all images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment was wet embossed using clear EP. I colored and shaded the mountain image with Copic markers. The background of the scene was made by sponging and the sun created by masking.

Thank you for the lovely comments. The scene was created with 2 separate stamps from the same GKD set (Mountain Wilderness).
