Eastern promise

I was trying to create a Chinese-style landscape scene behind my Buddha  - not too sure how successful it was, but definitely mountains! All the stamps are from Chocolate Baroque, and the scenery is all created using brushes, distress inks  and torn paper masks - lots of fun..
I stamped the buddha figure first, coloured with inktense pencils, then with a versamark pen and clear embossed it. Mountains are black soot distress ink, with tree stamp from teeny weeny meadow peeking out in places. The same tree stamp was used in the meadow-type bits, and the large single tree was part of a stamp from terrific treescapes  coloured with marker pens. Wisteria stamp  in the foreground  also comes from the tranquiility set along with the buddha, and was stamped using 3 different green inkpads.
I am entering this for two challenges,
