Another challenge - water

Good morning.

A bright and early post today, I wanted to show you the card I have done for my second challenge over at the  Less is More blog 

It is good for me to have a bit of a theme to work to, it seems to trigger a different part of my brain, rather than having to think what to do from nothing.
The theme for this challenge is Water and it has to be a one layer card ie the design is done on the base card with no layers at all.  This is what I did:

I masked off a border round the edge of the card.  I picked up some Sail Boat Blue ink on my brayer, then ran it over scruched paper to give it some texture, I ran that across the bottom edge of the card.
I stamped the lovely couple in the boat on the water, then the bullrushes.
I used torn paper and lettuce ink to add some hills in the background, the brushed some more blue for the sky and added a touch of watermelon.
Then added the flock of birds.
I removed the masking tape and squiggled two lines round the frame and coloured in with  pencils using blue first, then green.

All stamps used are from Claritystamp
