Thinking of You and A Lesson Learned Long Ago:-)

Hi Stampers!!

This card was created for the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSSC162 Sketch Challenge and I decided to use to combine two of my favorite new stamp sets, Wetlands along with Notable Notions. 

Again, if you have the time, check out the Hand Stamped Sentiments site- their Design Team outdid themselves!!

The Canadian Goose and I have a "history"- let me just say, do not try to feed a nesting pair of geese...the male is very protective :-)  This stamp reminds me of this very humorous lesson I learned years ago :-)

To create this card:

Use a sticky note to create the circular image for the “moon” and sponge Cool Cabana Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Ink the script stamp with Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp over the sponged sky area.

Remove the mask and stamp the Canadian Goose image using Basic Gray Classic Ink and use the AquaPainter™ with Smoky Slate Classic Ink to watercolor the feathers and Pistachio Pudding for the grass area. 

Use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Stampin’ Write Basic Gray marker to add a bit of distressing.

Adhere this focal image onto Basic Black and then again onto Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment using Basic Gray Classic Ink onto Whisper White and adhere to the bottom of the focal image.  Mount the entire panel onto Basic Gray cardstock.

Add the banners to the side (I used scrap pieces of DSP of which a few were embossed) and the photo corners were created with the retired Photo Corner Punch and hand cut to a smaller size.

Add the Basic Black cardstock layer onto the Whisper White card base- stamp the script from Notable Notions using the Illuminate ink pad, add the embossed Whisper White panel along with the ½” Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon.

Add the Pearls to the photo corners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Wetlands, Notable Notions

Ink: Cool Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Island Indigo, Basic Black Basic Gray, Pistachio Pudding, Illuminate, Stampin’ Write Basic Gray marker

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray, retired Designer Series Paper

Oh, yes, geese can be mean - but not as mean as the beautiful swan, they're vicious! LOL. I love the card, the masked moon is a beautiful addition. Your skill at building layers is like nobody else's! Thanks for playing at HSS :) Erika
