This was my first card but I'm sure it won't be my last!

So how did I make this card?
I started by stamping the deer in black and then masking them.
Next I stamped the mountains with Elegant Eggplant and again (without re-inking the stamp) slightly above and to the left and then a third time in between to create a range of mountains disappearing into the distance.
I coloured the mountains with sponge daubers and Wisteria Wonder ink (for the more distant mountains) and a light coating of Elegant Eggplant . I used a little more ink in places for shadows and crags.
I used a sponge dauber and Pear Pizzazz ink to create grasslands - getting lighter near the mountains to give an impression of distance.
I added Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso inks to the tree stamp using Stampin' Write Markers and then stamped the trees (twice).
At this point I removed the mask from the deer and watercoloured them with Delightful Dijon and Soft Suede inks.
I stamped the grass image with Pear Pizzazz in the foreground and lightly stamped this off heading towards the mountains a bit to give a bit of texture to the grasslands.
I then used the same grass stamp with Mossy Meadow to add some shadowy depth to the foreground (especially under the trees) and sponged a little Mossy Meadow to the bottom edge to finish giving depth to the foreground.
I used a sponge dauber and Soft Sky for the sky and then added a little Marina Mist to the top edge.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I placed it in the grasslands with black ink.
The stamped panel was matted onto Mossy Meadow cardstock and then placed onto the Old Olive card.
