Wetlands by the Sea

I was so excited to see the Wetlands set in the new SU catalog.  I had some watercolor ocean scenes in my UFO box and needed something to put on them. These shore birds were just what I was looking for.

The ocean scene was done with watercolor crayons and and Aqua Painter.  I stamped the birds in Going Gray and the starfish and sand dollar in Sahara Sand.

Wowza, this looks like a genius watercolor painting you would find in a gallery along a beach boardwalk! And you'd pay big bucks for it! Fantastic, Bonnie!!
