Guest Designing and A Challenge

I am so excited while sharing this post with you all today. When Yvonne from Do More With Less invited me over to guest design at her blog, I was like...Whaaat??? Me :) but as soon as the initial excitement settled down, lots of ideas came knocking at my door, which really confused me...lol. Finally, I decided on sharing a small tutorial along with how and what got me inspired??

As you may know, or maybe not, I am living in Switzerland and the things associated with Switzerland, which come to my mind immediately are, of course, Chocolates, Cheese and not to forget the Swiss Alps....Hmmm!!! I got inspired by the Alps on this Yogurt box :)


My card looks like this:


Would you like to know how I created the background??? I have put together a small step by step tutorial on how to create a background scene for you all along with an interesting challenge...

 
Step 1: Mask the grass area.
 

Step 2: Color with Distress Ink



Step 3: Cover the grass area and the sky (the unmasked part will be the mountains)


Step 4: Distress the mountains


Step 5: Cover mountain and grass area.


Step 6: Color the sky




This is my first tutorial so please go easy on me :)

I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
Moxie Fab Stamp It week challenge
SirStampalot challenge: Whats your crafty passion: Creating backgrounds with distress inks is one of mine

So head on over at Yvonne's blog for the challenge, I will be giving the winner a 15$ Gift Certificate to the Lil Inker Designs Shop too. And while at the blog, you will find that she is an incredibly talented artist with a fabulous style of creating with colors, mists, textures etc...
Huge thanks Yvonne for this honor.

See you all soon with more exciting news ;)
