Inks & Watercolour Pencils

So I have now finished my little go at freehand painting - I added another layer of green & white to the mountains and then added the sentiment - crooked of course so then I had to trim the card around 3 sides to make the sentiment straight[er] - LOL...

Materials Used: Pale blue base card distressed with 2 shades of blue from a Color Box Rainbow Paintbox ink pads, then Shabby Shutters DI around the base and lower edges, Faber Castell Artists Watercolour pencils used to detail trees and snow capped mountains. Unity Stamp Company Quiet Essence sentiment in royal blue Versacolor ink.

I am linking to the following challenges with this creation
