A third post in one day?! It must be some kind of miracle, lol!

Anyway, on Sunday I was able to make a couple of scenery style ATCs with the set from Hobby Art so here is the second one.

This one took a fair bit of masking but was well worth the effort in my opinion.

It started with the flowers in the foreground, then the tall floral sets, then the gate and finally the hills in the distance – each of these layers was masked off.

The clouds were then added with a gently blended Versacolor blue inkpad and a mask that I made from a post it note.

After peeling back all of the layers I finished off, and extended some detail, with a Pigma micron pen and then set to colouring with my Spectrum Noir pencils.

And hey presto, can you imaging walking along that path to your cottage in the middle of nowhere and just relaxing … ?

    Lovely work John and ignore stupid comments about not being able to complete before the end of the year. Whether you do or not (and l for one think you will ) at least you gave yourself a challenge which is more than can be said for a lot of folks. Well done.

    This is just lovely. The detail you have created with the pencils is wonderful. I will try to use my pencils more often.
