Wash Day

My card today is for the second challenge over on the Lavinia blog, and this month they are asking for Bright and Beautiful. I started by making a background to stamp onto using pan pastels, and a piece of paper shaped for the hills. The clouds were made by rubbing away the pan pastel and also the sun, I just replaced the blue with yellow for the sun. I then stamped over the top with tuxedo black Memento ink, using a darker shade of green to make some foliage on the trees and to pick out the shadows. The sentiment was from Inkylisious

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
