I have had this heron since Christmas and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it. DH's aunt lives near water on Long Island and will be the perfect recipient for this project. I sponged the background first, then cut the dies all in white, choosing white canvas Core'dinations paper for added interest. I bought the seabirds awhile back and was excited to get to use them for this scene. I used a stitched snow bank for placement of the sentiment. I used a Stampin' Up birthday sentiment. Recently I became frustrated with the difficulty in finding sentiments in my Stampin' Up binders. I dedicated a single binder to ONLY stamp set sentiments. I then pulled all sentiments from their set and stored them alphabetically in this binder. Now finding a particular sentiment is SOOOO much easier! However I did not track which sentiment goes with what set.
Distress Ink colors used:
Squeezed Lemonade (sun)
I added water sparkle with white gel pen.
