Mountain Retreat

(You can click on the image to enlarge)

Anne here and I created a card using the new Pagoda die.  Have you seen all the new Asian dies recently released?  If not, you should definitely check them out.  I want all of them :-).

I started out by die cutting it out of white cardstock and a piece of red fun foam.  I used my Copic markers to color the pagoda. Bright yellow paper was adhered to the back of the die cut for the little cut outs.

Once I was happy with the coloring, I heat embossed the entire thing with Clear embossing powder by Ranger.  I love how this makes it look like the pagoda is painted with glossy paint.  Then I adhered this to the fun foam for more dimension.

For the background, I started out with a piece of watercolor paper and used a Dreamweaver stencil (Cherry Blossoms) to add the flowers using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I free-handed the mountains in the background using the Zig markers.  The sky was also watercolored with these Zig markers and a aqua brush.
