Coast to Coast

The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is Just Add Water.  I combined that with the sketch at Paper Craft Crew Challenges to come up with this card:

The main image was stamped onto watercolor paper and very loosely colored.  I then cut a window out of a Sahara Sand card base and framed it in black.  I stamped the row of birds from Wetlands onto Sahara Sand and cut it out with the Designer Label Punch, the layered that onto a Cameo-cut frame.

I flipped the sketch so as not to cover too much of the image and I also didn't put the three embellishments on, letting the baker's twine act as the embellishment.

Thanks for looking.
