I love this stamp set in the new 2013-2014 Stampin Up Catalogue! I decided to use the Terns from this set and show them how you would normally see them, walking around in the shallows of the water. I made a 1" circle mask for the sun, and sponged the sky using soft Sky, Bermuda Bay and gently sponged a horizon line in Pacific Point. The sun I sponged in Crushed Curry and then dabbed a little Cajun Craze to the upper section. The embossed background was done using the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder. I wanted the design of the embossing folder to be the 'right way up' for my landscape orientation so embossed the cardstock in two sections. The framelit used for the main image area and the Soft Suede frame are from the Labels Collection Framelits. The touch of the Baked Brown Sugar Stretch Trim finished the card off, and I was so happy with the result. The sentiment is from the Wetlands set. This set shows so much promise and is so versatile, already I am envisaging all the ways it can be used! The ladies are going to be doing this card in class on Friday and I know they will fall in love with this set too, Till next time happy stamping.
