Wading Birds

Hi! A friend at work asked me to make a card for his girlfriend's birthday, with either a red panda or wading birds on it. I haven't got any red panda or wading bird stamps, and I couldn't find any suitable digistamps, so I borrowed the 'Wetlands' SU stamp set from my lovely mate Linda.

I used ink dusters to create the beach, sea and sky, and then stamped the birds and sea grass. I added a border to the scene and layered it onto white card with the sentiment printed on it. It didn't look very girly, so I added gems to the sentiments, and added a ribbon threaded with soapstone bird beads. I hope my friend's girlfriend will like it :)


 


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
