I decided to make an Easter card even though I don't have any Easter stamps yet! Maybe it was the heat this weekend but I also decided to have another go with my brayer. (My brayer and I don't have the greatest relationship!) I did the classic torn paper mountains thing, brayering them with Soft Suede ink. I then covered the mountains and brayered the sky in So Saffron, masking the sun with a 1" circle mask cut out of a post-it note. I added a little bit of So Saffron ink to the sun so it didn't look so stark. I then made another mask of a cross, and stamped through in Basic Black ink with the bloom from Fresh Vintage.
Stamps: Fresh Vintage
Inks: Soft Suede So Saffron, Basic Black
Card: So Saffron, Whisper White, textured Chocolate Chip
Other: brayer, 1" circle punch, lattice embossing folder
Edited to add: I added in an inked black semi-circle to 'ground' the cross a bit more than in these photos.

After church yesterday we went for a bike ride, exploring further up the valley from our village. We enjoyed gorgeous sunshine and stunning views. Unfortunately when cycling away from a water stop, I turned around to do my usual paranoia check to see that we hadn't dropped anything and I managed to veer into a hedge. And it was a hawthorn hedge. My left arm is now a fine example of cuts and scrapes! I felt like a small child on getting home when I had to rub Germolene into them all!!
