This is for my parents anniversary...since retiring they've been into renovating caravans, so I thought it fun to represent this time in their lives. One day they might even travel on a holiday in one!
I masked & sponged the background in stages, sky first, mountains, water, lastly foreground.
I stamped the van on the picture, then again on scrap card which I copic colored & trimmed to be adhered at the end. Now I worked on the foreground details, creating a path to the caravan, shadows under it & adding autumn trees & shrubbery. White gel pen details lift the elements to life. After adhering the caravan in place, I created shadows on the van. Finally I added the white embossed greeting on a vellum strip & little punched flowers to give it a 3D element.
For the Free for all TRAVEL challenge and the Ways to use it textures: The daisies, the embossed greeting & the smooth glossy accents on the window.

Oh, what a beautiful scene you have created. I love the little camping trailer, my DH, and I used to have one that looked similar to this . it was a scotty. I love your little flowers, and you have done a wonderful job on those vibrant trees. I love everything about this gorgeous card. tfs.
I'm trying to scrape my jaw up off the floor. The masked layers and your inking are spectacular. So much work went into this and it certainly paid off. Love the trees and all the detailed shadowing. Amazing!
