Stampin' Up! Wetlands Birthday

Today I have a card to share with you that uses one of my favorite masculine stamp sets...Wetlands.  There's so much you can use it for including the sentiments.  When I scrolled through all my Wetlands' posts to see what I made with this set I realized a lot of cards used just one of the sentiments from the set.  Today it has a sentiment, the wheat and the goose. :)  I made this card for my brother-in-law's birthday which was a couple of weeks ago, although I had made the oval part a while ago.  I didn't even know I had it until I went through one of my bags (that's always sitting on my desk!).  I knew it had to be made into a card. :)

It's been so long since I had made it that I had to think about what colors I used on it and how it started it out! lol  I think I started by sponging the water using Bermuda Bay (I masked the sky area with a sticky note first).  Next I added some of the grass using the wheat stamp and Pear Pizzazz, but not a lot yet.  I added the goose and colored him with a Basic Black Marker, and the grass with a Pear Pizzazz marker.  Once that was stamped I added more grass at the bottom by turning the wheat stamp upside down so I was only getting blades of grass.  Then I sponged the area with Pear Pizzazz to soften it up.  I used a blender pen to add some color to the goose.  I blocked off the goose, then sponged the sky using VERY light touches of Bermuda Bay and Rose Red (basically used a sponge and huffed on it  to get it damp instead of adding more ink to it).  To finish it off I used a white gel pen to add ripples and waves in the water.

You can see that I stamped a bit on the inside too.  I did the wheat on each side, then turned the stamp upside down again to add blades of grass in the  middle and used a sponge to blend it all together.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
