Happy August! I have been spending most of this summer preparing to teach a new grade level next year, as well as organizing different areas of our home... so I haven't had nearly as much time to stamp as I usually do during the summer. But this stamp set has been out on my desk for a month now, and I've been itching to give it a whirl!
For this birthday card, I started by stamping the duck from The Wilderness Awaits set, using StazOn Timber Brown ink. The whisper white panel I used measured 3" x 4.25". I colored him in using color pencils, keeping the darker shading close to where the shading marks are on the stamped image. Then I roughly sketched in the water and mountains, and colored them in with color pencils as well. For the sky, I went with peach and pink tones. I used the sentiment from the Wetlands stamp set, and stamped it in StazOn Timber Brown ink in the top left corner. I lightly sponged some Creamy Caramel ink around the edges of the panel, mounted it on a 3 1/8" x 4 3/8" piece of Early Espresso cardstock, and then onto a Bermuda Bay card base that I had embossed with the Tulip Frame TIEF. Hope you enjoy today's nature-inspired card, and thanks for stopping by!
