Wetlands Birthday

Wetlands continues to be one of my go to sets for masculine cards.

I'm so glad it wasn't retired!

I inked the goose stamp with markers and stamped.
Using a blender pen and a bit of Crumb Cake marker scribbled on a plastic lid,
I colored the body of the goose.

I masked the goose and stamped the taller grasses "behind" the goose
with Delightful Dijon ink.

Some die cutting and some embossing with the 
Lil' Inker Stitched Circle die gave him a good place to hang out.


The Masculine Touch

I used markers to ink the goose stamp.


Here's another of our recent visitors....

A baby bluebird

In typical baby bird fashion, when he saw his mama
he opened his mouth for a snack.

I'm glad you visited too.

I am so loving this card Bonnie! I love the way you put your image in the stitched circle and ringed it with a stitched circle again of another color. A great masculine card for sure. I also love how you stamped the "grass" at the bottom of the card with the sentiment. Hugs, Brenda
