I was waiting to see a programme on tv and the previous show was on so was thinking about my postcard, as you do. I started to watch because it was about the restoration of Qianlong Garden in Beijing's Forbidden City. One of the men involved in the work traveled from his home in Anhui Province. They showed the most wonderful mountain views and these were my inspiration. I got out the brayer and had a go, it does not do justice to the original but I had fun trying. I used a big and juicy ink pad "Mountain Meadow" on glossy card stock. I added some pine and bamboo in the foreground, stamped with Stazon. The pine is a Sheena Douglas stamp and the bamboo from Kodomo Inc. I could not bear to put a bike on the picture so it is on the reverse side of the postcard this week. Below is the page in my book, work in progress, the papers are from Serif "Oriental" digi kit.
