Happy Tuesday! It's the first day of the hop so I get to share two cards I created with "Marsh Birds".
I decided for this card to just showcase part of the cattails stamp. I lightly sponged blue behind the cattails. Created a window with label dies and added the veneer dragonflies. I can't quite capture the color correctly but the inner window is a Dark Blue.
I have left off the sentiment on the inside until I know the destination of the card.
To create the Marsh for this fellow, I used the 2 Cattail Stamp from "Marsh Silhouettes". I masked off pieces of grass or cattails to achieve the look I wanted.
Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to leave a comment here and at my talented teammate's blogs for your chance to receive today's new release!
