Rolling Hills Are Alive...

I used a sample from the demonstrator magazine Stampin' Success as a starting point for this card. I love grassy hill and tree scenes; you may have seen it from me before. This is a good example of using a Valentine stamp set, Valentine Defined here, for other occasions.

Not so accessory heavy here, but still lots of layers and texture. This is a shoebox swap card, so it needs to be a 10-15 minute card. I thought the Marina Mist background would give the resemblence of the sky, without actually bothering to color the sky. Did it work?

Stamps: Valentine Defined, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Old Olive DSP, Pear Pizzazz DSP, Soft Suede DSP; Ink: Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede marker; Accessories: Sponges, Red Glimmer paper, Heart to Heart punch, Coluzzle, Scallop Trim punch, Framed Tulips embossing folder, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think the Marina Mist does work for the "sky"! Lovely card, TFS.

I like how you used this set for something other than a Valentine's Day or Love project. I'll have to keep that in mind...

TFS!
