Better late than never!

Here is my rather late entry for this week's less is more where the theme is 'legs' and 'one layer'. I used post its to mask off an area of card and then used my ink dusters and distress inks to create a landscape. I stamped it with the tree (Making tracks, inc.) and the stag (Stampscapes). The trees needed a bit of water brushed over them to give them more definition. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions. This one is for my Brother-in-law, whose birthday is at the end of the month.
Only a week left at school now, and I can't tell you how much I am ready for a holiday, but I wish I could hang on to the wonderful class I've had. This year has flown by far too quickly!

I love how you've created your beautiful scene in a strip in the middle of the card, Sally, that's so effective. The colours on the hills are very serene, I love it.
