Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #81 ~ Picture Inspiration

Hello and welcome,
I'm running a little late posting my project for the current fortnightly challenge over at the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
It's a picture inspiration this time and I am very interested in the theme of Cairns, didn't realise I do this often when I'm surrounded by rocks on my beach walks lol.
I was inspired by Joan Bess tutorial using masking fluid with the gelli plate printing... I started by squiggling the fine tip masking fluid rose design over my blank cardstock before following the steps.
I've used the herringbone and polka dot stencils to give lots of interest and texture to the earthy base layer.
I cut out some rock shapes free hand from some scrap paper to use as a mask over the background to then pull another print. I removed the masking fluid to get the bright white design.
I then reused the rock shapes to add shadows with distress inks, and a white and black stabilo pencil to add even further depth, I spritz the finished image with water to activate the pencils.
I completed my picture with a very fitting quote...

I'm adding this to a few other challenges...
