Postcard Challenge Week 51

It's the penultimate week for Darcy's Postcard Challenge and we are in Greenland.

 C'est l'avant-dernière semaine du défi Carte postale de Darcy et nous sommes au Groenland.

I saw some stunning images of Greenland while I was looking around for ideas.

But Birthday Canyon really stood out most.

I started my card by brayering in Tempting Turquoise before adding some Pacific Point.
I made the ice using Frost White Shimmer paint and then made the whole thing sparkle with a quick spray of Champagne Mist Shimmer paint.

J'ai vu des images époustouflantes du Groenland pendant que je regardais pour trouver des idées.

Mais Birthday Canyon qui m'a vraiment marqué .

J'ai commencé ma carte par brayering dans Turquoise Tentation avant d'ajouter un peu de Pointe Pacifique. J'ai fait la glace en utilisant la peinture chatoyante
blanc givré, puis j'ai fait étincelé tout avec un jet rapide de peinture chatoyante Brume de Champagne.

This is Tim's last postcard to Simone and he is bitterly saying goodbye.

C'est Tim dernière carte postale de Simone et il est amère de dire au revoir.

Nous avons toujours dit que nous viendrions à Birthday Canyon pour ton anniversaire
Mais comme cela n'allait jamais se passer maintenant, je vais en profiter seul.

J'ai signé les papiers.

Au revoir Simone
T'aime toujours, Tim xx

I'll be back next week with Simone's final card.
 Je reviens la semaine prochaine avec la dernière carte de Simone.

  1. Sad about the break up, but glad that Simone is claiming her life back :D Love the stunning simplicity of this card. Perfect representation of the beautiful baron landscape :D XXX

  2. Great interpretation of the scene. Just hope Simone can look onward and upward without drippy Tim!!

  7. Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
    I'm brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of
    suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
