Wetlands Birthday

Hello.  I'm winding up the weekend and have one more card to share with you.  A friend at work is celebrating his birthday, so both challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and ColourQ provided inspiration for a masculine card.

The blues and sand were perfect for use with the Wetlands Stamp, but I wasn't sure where to incorporate Kiwi Kiss, but a look through my box of designer series paper scraps yielded the final piece of Kiwi Kiss that I own - just meant to be!

Starting with a rectangle of watercolor paper, the bottom half was made wet then Sahara Sand ink was randomly inked across the entire piece.  I did the same with the top half, using Soft Sky and Not Quite Navy.  After the color was satisfactory, I dried the piece with my heat tool then stamped the greeting and the birds.  The final touch was adding a Vintage brad to the corner.

As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated.  Do use the links above to check out all the wonderful design team inspiration.

I hope you have a great week ahead!
