explore dream discover - "Life is Good" set from GKD by Theresa Momber

yes, friends!
I am lovin this set....will try to not make EVERY post with it...but here's another one.

This card is simple and quick- just stamping and a little sponging! This set is going to catch me up on my "stash" of MAN-Cards!!!

Used SU Sage Shadow cardstock and with my CB, cut the top note die. With Memento's Bamboo Leaves - stamped the trees and kept stampin off. Next, inked a landscape mountain stamp titled "Mountain" from Blue Ridge Impressions using SU Night of Navy onto center of cardstock. With Memento Black, stamped my two deer. Sponged trees lightly with SU Old Olive and then darker across the bottom. Sponged trees again with SU Saffron and also in the sky area. (thought this gave a nice "fog" effect). Sponged sky with light and heavy pressure using SU Bordering Blue. Added white accents across mountain tops! Final touch was coloring the border with SU Old Olive Marker...and stamped sentiment with Memento Black (always hold my breath that my sentiment will be straight!! too lazy to pull out Stampa-ma-jig thingy..buried in here somewhere)

Started to add black brads...then decided against it - wanted to keep this one "man-ly"  LOL
oh...and the whole image is raised on dimensional dots!

Have a blessed day,

PS I had given the wrong info on the mountain stamp - found the correct distributor and the above info is now correct - my apologies to Biblical Impressions!
