At last, as promised, here is how it was done.
I inked up the card with a mixture of Distress Inks, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick using Cut and Dry foam. I then spritzed the card with water, allow to stand for a few seconds, then dab off gentley with a paper towel just as you begin to see the water spots change colour slightly, this gives a lovely mottled effect.
The next step was to mist the card with Cosmic Shimmer mister Rich Gold giving it a little sparkle. To make the mountains tear a little mask from scrap paper ready to lay over your background. Place the mask a little up from the bottom to make the first range of mountains, using Distress Ink Black Soot. Move the mask up ready to make the next range, DO NOT re ink your foam pad before you make the next mountain, this will give a paler covering giving the impression of distance. Continue as far as you wish leaving room for your dragon to fly over. Lastly stamp your dragon silhouette in Black Soot.
I hope you enjoy trying this out.
