Today's card uses the new stamp set, Wetlands. This set is by the same artist who drew the Hostess set, Simply Sketched, and I love his/her work!! I hope Stampin' Up! will use this artist more!
I wanted a card that would be appropriate for a man. I used the Soft Suede card stock for it, and accented it with Crushed Curry card stock. I stamped the goose and the grasses from the set on a white piece using the Soft Suede. I used Soft Sky ink brushed on with a sponge for the sky, some Crumb Cake for the earth, some Crushed Curry on the grasses and a dab of Cajun Craze in the sky.
For the sentiment, I used the birthday greeting that was in the Wetlands set. I punched it out using the large oval punch and mounted that onto a curry piece cut using one of the dies in the Chalk Talk die collection. I put a piece of rolled-up linen thread between the two to set it off.I think this would be appropriate for any man's birthday, don't you?
Thanks for stopping in. See you again soon.
