Water colored background

Hi all! I did a little playing around using some distress inks and some water color paper to see what kind of cool back grounds I could come up with.  This was done using weathered wood, scattered straw and a little bit of faded jeans. The original paper was about 4 x 5 and I decided to use my circle nestie to cut out the best of the water color effect.

Stamp is from Memory box and I used the MS punch to cut out a line of birds and then snipped one off to sit on the branch. 

Sentiment stamp is from Victorine Originals. Yellow paper is from Making Memories and the baby blue cardstock is from American Crafts. Black gingham ribbon is used to a bit of splash on the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
