Birds of a Feather

I really like this stamp from the Stampin Up set "Wetlands" and thought it very appropriate for the current challenge at Time Out which is entitled "Birds of a Feather". I'm also going to enter it in challenge 27 at AAA cards which is Play with Watercolours. I stamped the image with archival ink and then used distress inks to watercolour it. The reeds were stamped and then clear embossed.

Materials used:-
Stamps - SU Wetlands set
Archival black ink and various distress inks
Card - SU crumb cake

Thanks for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments. Margaret


  1. Very peaceful card. Love the colour choices!

  2. Lovely soft water colourimg and the embossed reeds are a perfect touch for this design. Thanks for joining us at TIME OUT

  3. So tranquil, Margaret ... such a beautifully watercoloured scene! So pleased you played along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

  4. This is so beautifully done. I love how you somehow got the look of reflections in the water.

    1. I can't take the credit for the reflections - these are part of the stamp.

  5. Fun beach scene! Thanks for joining in at AAA!

  6. Such a pretty serene card, beautiful! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  7. Sublime beauty! The more you look at it, the more appreciated it becomes. I love water scenes, and that die cut really sets the image off. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at AAA Cards. Cheers, Victoria Lavender
