new landscape painting and new cards

This weekend was a good one in the creative time department.  The heat kept me indoors for large parts of the day, so I was able to sneak away to my studio and create.

I made several cards, all inspired by the "Background Check" class I'm taking at Online Card Classes.  This was another great class.  The first two cards use the positive and negative of die-cut feathers.  I just ran the same die-cut through my big shot several times, each times moving the die-cut.  For the first feather card, I used an ink blending tool and distress inks to create the background for the feathers.  For the second one,  I used my watercolor makers to paint the background and then glued the feather die-cut sheet on top.

For the last card I used a dry embossing folder to create the circles, then I colored the circles with an ink blending tool and distress inks.

And finally this is my most recent landscape painting.  I haven't painted much this summer, just a couple watercolor paintings.  So I forced myself to break out the acrylics and it felt great.  I set a goal last fall of painting 50 landscape paintings and I need to get back to it.  I'm not sure exactly what number this one is, maybe 17?
This is only the first layer, but I think it's off to a good start!
