Wetlands Birthday

As soon as I saw the Wetlands stamp set I knew it would be just perfect fr a card for my eldest son. He is a frequent visitor to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge.  I didn't expect the card to take so long to make though!

The first version also had the goose on in the lower left hand corner but its head went onto the insert and it looked as though it had had its neck cut! (Ready for the pot maybe?) So that got scrapped and version number two started. This  time I stamped the little waders and promptly dropped the stamp straight back down.  Version number three went beautifully till I stamped the grasses and managed to get ink on the edge of the stamp so had two odd looking lines that I couldn't disguise no matter how hard I tried. So here is version four - phew! Now it hasn't photographed very well but there really is a white border all the way round. I stippled Soft Sky ink onto the insert with a stencil brush rather than sponging. The little birds were stamped in black stazon and clear embossed.

Card recipe:
Cardstock: Soft Sky , Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Soft Suede
Stamp set:  Wetlands



Other: Clear embossing powder.
