Hills and Mountains at Craft a Scene

Good afternoon, hope you're having a nice relaxing Sunday. I'm back with another post, this time for our new challenge over at Craft a Scene where our theme is 'Hills and Mountains'. I couldn't resist playing with my gelli plate acrylic paints and a palette knife to create a snowy scene, after all its never too early to start those Christmas cards lol.


I used the palette knife to apply white  paint to my gelli plate, creating the hills and mountains as I went along, I used a sponge to add some pearl acrylic paint to the sky are to create some clouds. Now if you have a go at this technique don't worry if it looks absolutely pants when you pull your print from the gelli plate lol, you just have to go with it and get inking and it will start to look better (honest). Once I'd pulled my print I masked the moon and inked in the sky using Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and a little chipped sapphire distress ink. I used the same shades to add some depth to the gelli plate scene and then got to work with some white gesso, adding a bit of texture to the hills and mountains. 


I used stamps from Sheena Douglass, Stampendous and Inkylicious and added a little colour to the stamped images with Graph'It markers.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: no flowers
Completely Christmas: anything goes
fab'n'funky: Fantasy
Jingle Belles: spirit of Christmas past
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Sparkles Forum Christmas: inspired by a Carol

  2. Such a wonderful scene Claire, I love what you've done with the Gelli Plate. You've got such a lot of depth into the scene, not sure I'd like to live in the houses under the mountains though.
