Two more challenges

I am so excited to show you this card I made!  I love it:)  It looks pretty simple, but wait until you see the supply list!

It started out a little different, I just kept changing it. ( I thought it was too plain and simple)

The first challenge is,  Always Playing with Paper, Merry Monday Challenge #4.  The second challenge is, The Paper Players, Tag it! Challenge #79. I hope you will hop over and take a look at all the wonderful cards:)

What do you think?  I have a “thing” for white backgrounds.  I almost always make my card and then mount it on white cardstock.

I used plain cardstock for the bird stamp and “water colored” it with my aqua brush.  I did have to reinforce it with another piece of cardstock, because when you use water on cardstock it tends to warp.  I used very little water.  I used my stamp pads and kinda squished them together to get ink on the inside of the cover.  Then I just dipped my brush in it:)  I like the total effect.

For the bird, (Beautiful Season) I inked up my rubber stamp with VersaMark and then Basic Black.  That way I could emboss with clear powder.

Let me know if you have more questions:)
