Darkroom Door Majestic Mountains Stamp Mask Card

During times of uncertainty, I find the seeds of the Word of God, planted long ago, coming to mind to fill my heart with assurance and my spirit with comfort.  Isaiah 54:10 has been coming to me again and again.  It reminded me of the beautiful graphic for this month's Darkroom Door Facebook Challenge.  I had the idea to use my embossing pen to add the scripture.

Here are the basic steps. I stuck three sticky notes down onto my glass mat and stamped the largest two Majestic Mountains stamps across the notes.  Next, I covered the notes with long strips of packing tape and cut the ridge away from the sky.  This made me a more permanent stencil and mask that I can use again for future projects.  I sponged the sky using Distress Oxides in Dusty Concord and Stormy Sky.  Then I stamped the back mountains in Watering Can Archival ink.  I sponged them with more Stormy Sky.  I continued to stamp more mountains in black using my masks/stencils.  I tapped the above mentioned inks and Tumbled Glass onto my mat and then watercolored the mountains.  I used the leftover ink and a bit of water to splash the design.  Finally, I dried the panel very well and dusted it with an embossing buddy/powder so I could emboss my scripture. 

I chose my favorite portion of the 5.5x8" panel and cut it square.  I cut the Prayers die from the leftovers.  I added more stamped and embossed trees along the bottom. 

I plan to use the next few weeks to send out cards to those I love.  I am the worlds worst at making cards and not sending them.  I am so thankful for this extra time to get caught up.

This stamp set is available at TopFlight Stamps.

This is gorgeous, Amber! Thank you for sharing your faith with the world, that scripture has been with me a lot lately as well. I love the idea to use the embossing pen—that turned out really well! Blessings to you and yours during this challenging time.

Hi, Autumn! May this find you and yours well. Scripture is a comforting balm for me as well right now. Your art caught my eye, colors so comforting to me and I love how you masked out your scene. Take good care and I will do the same. XOX
