Brighter Days

For today's card I've used stamps from four different Stampin' Up sets to make this summery scene.  I started with a wash of colour using distress inks on watercolour paper; over-stamping some detail for the sea and sand before adding some birds and grasses.  The girl and balloons were stamped and cut out - the strings were added using a black fine line pen.


Sea, Sand, Birds in Sky - High Tide stamp set Stampin' Up
Birds on Beach and Tall Grasses - Wetlands stamp set SU
Girl and Sentiment - Beautiful You stamp set SU
Balloons - Balloon Celebration stamp set SU
Distress Ink Pads - Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass
