Mountain Rams




Hope you all are having a good week. The Mountain Rams from the Whimsy DoveArt collection are a super versatile stamp. I used them on a friendship card but they are also great to be used on a birthday card for someone borne under the zodiac sign of Aries or for someone who loves the mountains etc. 

I colored the image using Karin Brush PRO Markers. Whimsy stamps has them on sale for a lower price now.....just saying! If you ever thought that the DoveArt stamps are difficult to color don't shy away. In fact they are super easy to color because the artist has already included all the shadow areas and details. This really makes it easy to color these images. Give it a try if you haven't already.


I wanted to include more background than only sky behind my image so I opted for the Create a Scene Forest rubber stamp also by DoveArt. Aren't these fir trees perfect in the background?  I also used the Friend Word & Shadow die as well as the Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set and the Upon a Star border die to create my card.

For my first card I used the lollipops from the 'Sweet as Sugar' clear stamp set included with the kit.

I colored the lollipops with Tombow Alcohol brush markers and cut them out. The word 'Sweet' was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink (as was the rest of the sentiment) and cut out using the "Sweet Word and Shadow Die"


Here are two angled shots:



For the background I wanted a subtle pattern so I stamped the large rubber background stamp "Sweets" with Versamark ink onto white cardstock and heat embossed white. It's hard to catch the white on white in the photo but I think you can see it here in this shot.
