Retro Wetlands

Hi all!
I'm on a coach at present on route to Scotland for a much needed holiday! I thought I would do some blogging whilst I have the blogger app.
I recently stumbled across the colour challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments:
I thought it would be great for a mans birthday card which I needed for a work colleague here is what I came up with:
I really enjoyed making this quick & simply card I have only just aquired this Wetlands stamp set so wanted to play with it. I knew I wanted to include a bit of Retro dsp and the Tangerine Tango seemed to be the best!! I used an aqua brush to paint the sunset looking background behind the birds. I then distressed it around the edges with my paper snips to give it some texture.
See you back here soon...

  1. So pretty! That sunset makes me feel like I'm right at the beach! Thanks for playing along with us at HSS!

  2. This is very lovely! I love your shading with the water and sky. This makes a nice card for ladies and men alike! Thanks for playing the color combo at HSS! Erika

  3. I am lovin' the sky in your card it's so intriguing. Like Breelin said, it does remind me too of a beach sunset. I am so glad you included your card in our color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth
