Country Views – Scenic Card Making

Hi everyone,

Thank you for calling in.

Today’s little project is another scenic card.

This card was made along the sames lines as the card on my previous post but this time I have used coated card stock as the base card for the stamping.

Again, I was thinking this card could be for Happy Retirement, New Home, Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day.  All occasions really.

I masked off the cottages and the sheep, using a liquid mask and coloured the background with Distress Inks.
I removed the the masks, coloured the images, again with distress inks and stamped the flowers around the bottom edge.
I added some paint dots to the grasses create some small flowers.
This card is about an A5 size.

Crafty individuals Stamps used:
Build a Landscape 2 CI 467 and Build a Meadow CI 395

Just some more photos to share

    Hi Florence, another fab scenic card, lovely your design and how you’ve framed it with the greenery.
    Love the sheep photos, I think sheep are brilliant animals and can be so funny , we have friends who have a small holding and have some sheep, and I love visiting them and helping with the lambing, all great characters, Kate x

      Thank you Kate. Awww! new born lambs. So precious. Sheep can be so funny. I like to watch them walking along with their heads down. They look like they are vacuuming the grass!! LOL!
      Have a lovely weekend.
      Hugs Flo x

      Thank you Pippa. I do miss the green fields of England especially if they have livestock in them. Ooo! and oak trees. The countryside here is green at the moment but in a couple of months time it will all be burnt off and brown!
      Have a lovely weekend.
      Hugs Flo x

    On a break from work. My exhusband lives close to where I work and I am able to drop by his house to eat some lunch or take a break…thank GOD! I always need a break from that place. Anyway, I thought I’d drop by to see your sweet card. Very nice alternate. I will definitely have to try how you do the sky – very lovely. Thank you for posting these wonderful creations, Flo. Well, I better get back. Sending hugs and love, Marianne

    I love these scenic views. There’s something so peaceful and relaxing about them. Just looking at the scene kind of slows down the heart rate and makes me feel …. ahhhhhhhh.

    Love the photos of the sheep. Especially the last one. Somehow, she looks like she should have a very British accent for she looks a bit like Dame Maggie Smith, playing Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham on Downton Abbey.

    Really great make and brilliant photos.
    Have a blessed rest of your day ~ Cobs. x

      OH!!! I posted a link, but it’s turned it into a big photo. Aww sorry Florence. Please feel free to delete it!
      [sigh] … computer technology. I must remember that it doesn’t think like we do! lol ~ Cobs. x

      Hi Cobs, Thank you for calling in. I am still giggling about your comment and photo. I adore Maggie Smith. She is a fantastic actress. Loved her in Downton Abbey and in Harry Potter. I do think late 19th century early 20th century clothes would suit this sheep. Lots of lace and frills to frame her face. I wish I had a more powerful lens so I could have taken a better photo and then been able to dress her digitally. She definitely needs a big hat! lol! She does have great features for an anthropomorphic character.
      Have a lovely weekend.
      Hugs Flo xx
      P.S. Sorry, this should have been a reply to your first comment 🙂

        LOL … I can see EXACTLY what you’re saying.

        Her name .. what would be her name I wonder.
        When I first saw her I instantly thought Dolly .. but then realised that she had a certain ‘thing’ which took her higher than Dolly … she was more ‘regal’ in some ways .

        So .. like Maggie Smith, I dobbed her with being a Dame for certain, and perhaps then because you felt she looked like your passport photo (which I’m absolutely certain she doesn’t – lol) I thought that perhaps she should be … Dame Florence of Langley.

        But … her name is a movable feast, for she is not my sheep but yours. (by way of a photo. lol)

        So … Dame something or other.
        Do give her my fondest regards, next time you see her, and tell her that she looks very regal dressed all in wool. Fur is SO last season, even though fashion designers believe it’s this season. Pfft. Fashion Designers! What do they know. They’re a year behind being in ‘the know’.

        Her Dame-ship is right on the ball with her fashion choice. You’ll see … next year it will be all pure new wool stuff on the catwalks.

        OK.. time for my medication I think. LOL

          Hello Florence. Happy Monday,
          If you have time, I wonder if you could pop over to my blog to have a quick peep at my latest post (yesterday – Sunday 19th April 2017 – as there’s something there which I think … aw, you’ll see what I mean when you get there :).
          Happy UnBirthday! ~ Cobs. x

    Personally the last sheep looks sheepish too me! Like you caught him doing something he shouldn’t have! Another excellent scene Florence. Have a great weekend!
