Let me show you my card...
This is a pretty simple card to make, On a water color card base. I stamped the two birds, one being slightly offset the edge with archival inks. I also stamped the sentiment. Then I did some water color wash. I also added a touch of grey on the birds, so that they don't look too simple. I am sharing this at A Blog Named Hero challenge - One layer, AAA card challenge #37 - Spring time and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - CAS
