Darkroom Door Majestic Mountains Stamped Card

Pause the regularly scheduled program for a inky good stamping time - just for fun!  :)  Aren't those the best?!  I received the oh so dear to my heart Majestic Mountains stamp set by Darkroom Door and just had to take a moment to play.  DH and I were supposed to go hiking today and I made this card to entice him, but instead had to attend a funeral for our youngest son's best friend's daddy.  What a terrible loss.  Please lift up the Thomason family in your prayers.  It's unthinkable...

I was in the mood for bright and summer colors, since it's still hot outside and I've been making so so many fall cards.  I sponged BluePrint Sketch and Mowed Lawn inward on my Tim Holtz Stitched Rectangle die cut, then sprayed water in the center to lift some of the excess ink off.  I dried the panel, then did the spritz and lift technique.

My elements were made with my stamping tool and Distress Ink pads.  I added color and more color until I got such vibrant effects, then had a fussy cutting marathon.  Whew!  ;0  I wanted a plaid background and finally decided on this stencil by Carta Bella.  I totally love this new stamp set and know you will too.  Make sure to play along with the current Travel challenge on the Darkroom Door Inspiration Facebook page with #ddoctoberchallenge.

Autumn, it is quite refreshing to see a card that is not for Fall or Halloween and this one is beautiful, the mountain really does draw you in and the sky you created is wonderful!

Sadly, on the last four Fridays we have heard of the death of friends/family, all taken too soon, but to die leaving a young family is, as you say, unthinkable - my heart goes out to the family....

Hugs, Anne xx

It makes me want to walk right into it Autumn. A beautiful refreshing scene, just what I needed to spark an idea for an upcoming male Birthday card.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Big Hugs Tracey xx

A gorgeous card which has me wanting to pull on my walking boots and head outside into nature. Beautifully done.
