Letters from home: LOOK

Look at this gorgeous "look"! I must admit this must be one of my favourite amongst all the projects that Neil has done for us so far. Just LOVE it... Reminds me of the gorgeous scenery we see here in Canada. 
Let's see how Neil made it... 

To make this I began by lining up the letters to spell the word and drew a hill line across the whole lot. I painted the sky in blue; (I added picket fence distress stain to give cloud detail) and the grass green. All the sides and backs were painted in brown and when everything was dry I stamped the floral image as seen in coffee archival ink. and the flying birds in black.

I die cut the small trees from chipboard, painted them in a darker green and used Walnut Stain to colour the trunks. When dry I used Distress Stickles to add some texture and a shimmer and added them across the letters until I was happy with the layout.
Lastly, I added the words in a black embossing pen and clear embossed them and edged everything with Inka Gold as well as over the words so the black did not stand out so harshly.

Here's what Neil used:
