Bird Gathering

Found another great idea for a card on Pinterest yesterday. There are so many easy sketches out there! (And some more complicated ones too.)

Here's my Serene Silhouettes watercolor background card. This is so easy. You guys have got to try this!

Card base Basic Black 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
121045 (8 1/2" x 11")
124267 (12" x 12")

Marina Mist matting cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
119682  (8 1/2" x 11")
124279 (12" x 12")

Woodgrain embossing folder

Black image mat cut @ 3 1/8" x 4 3/8"

Whisper White image mat cut @ 3" x 4 1/4"

124302 (12" x 12")

Serene Silhouettes stamp set for image

Aqua Painter used to "watercolor" background

Watercolor Background Summer Sun 

Watercolor Background Coastal Cabana

Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

While ink pad is closed, squeeze lid. Then open ink pad, wet the Aqua Brush tip, and swirl around in ink that got on the inside lid to pick up some color. Brush it onto Whisper White cardstock as desired for watercolor background affect. Easy Peasy :)
