No Snow Dust

I have another Father's Day card to share today...this is the other option I made for my flatmate to give to his Dad...you can see the first card here. For this card I started by inking up an acrylic block with shades of blue and green Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Bundled Sage, Forest Moss & Mowed Lawn), then misting it with a little water before stamping it on to white card to create a watercolour 'mountain' background...I was trying to fulfill at least one part of the 'mountain with sheep or goats' request! Once the ink had dried, I stamped my Penny Black 'Snow Dust' stamp over the top...without the 'dust' part, then added some grasses in the foreground using stamps from the 'Just for You' set by Hobby Art, and a Hero Arts sentiment.
