Woodland Scenery

Happy Saturday!

This morning I am playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast where we are being inspired by the China Online Museum.
Here is the lovely painting that I used as inspiration:

lin-fengmian- Mountain Forest


I began with a piece of heavy watercolor paper I got from a friend so not sure what the weight is.
Using my MISTI, I inked the trees stamp from Mark's Finest by coloring it with Memento and Crayola markers.  After spraying with a generous amount of water, I stamped, added more colour, sprayed with water and stamped again.  The rest is a watercolor wash.
I cut the piece into panels and pop-dot mounted it to my card front.
I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches under one of the panels.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

Oh wow, this looks amazing! I love the way your panels don't line up. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink.

Fabulous, Karen. I'd say you have the water spritzing technique down. I tend to get either too much or too little. The colors blend just perfectly on this card.
