Wetlands Stamp Set & Watercolouring Paper

It has been so cold in Needham Market recently, the lake has frozen over several times. I felt so sorry for the swans and various other birds who were unable to sit on the water, and watching them one Sunday I decided it has been a while since I made a card with birds, or used the Wetlands Stamp Set (available in Wood-Mount or Clear-Mount). 

Needham Market Lake, Suffolk

Watercolouring Backgrounds
I used our Watercolor Paper and an Aqua Painter to create the background for this card. I used some Ink Refills and dropped a couple of drops in the lid of our Classic Stampin' Pads (in their corresponding colours) - Soft Sky, So Saffron and Crumb Cake were the colours I used. 

Wetlands Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!

I put the watercoloured background piece aside and didn't stamp on it until it was bone dry. I then used Early Espresso to stamp the images. The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners, which is one of our Photopolymer stamp sets.
