More Wetlands

So, this kind of water coloring I can handle!  I heat embossed the birds and the birthday greeting with Early Espresso embossing powder on watercolor paper.  Next, I used my aqua painter and ink from the lids of my stamp pads to create the background.  It doesn't get any easier than that!

To step it up a notch, I decided to add some ribbon and a button.  Since this card is intended to be for a guy (but really I think it could be for girls as well), I used a Basic Metal Button and a small piece of Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon.  That's about as masculine as you can get with ribbon and buttons!

Here's everything I used:
