Funky Fossil - "Adventure" male birthday card

I've had a play with a Funky Fossil Designs stencils and stamp set to create this card today.

I've used the Funky Fossil clear stamp set called "Adventure" for all stamping.

I started by stamping the mountain using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I then stamped the trees using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  The lighter trees are secondary stamping, when there is less ink on the stamp after stamping the first darker images.

I painted the mountain area using three shades of of Distress Oxide Inks ( Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo), applied with a paint brush.

To create the hot air balloon, I used a red texture paste and the Funky Fossil "Up and away" stencil.  I then set aside to dry.

I coloured the sky with a paint brush and "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then layered the Funky Fossil "Micro Square" stencil over the sky area and added two furthe colours of Distress Oxide Inks - Broken China and Faded Jeans.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.
