I think this bird from the Rubber Stamp Gallery looks pretty cool, I'm not sure what it is but it looks like a sea bird to me. In fact the stamp is of a bird on a plinth, but I chose to have it standing in the water... which is the theme at Less is More this week.
I stamped him and then masked him, to ink the sky and the sea. I had fun with that by stamping and inking and painting and embossing until I thought it looked OK! I was quite pleased in the end. I was unsure of what to add as a sentiment so I didn't add any at all.
This used a stamp from Stampendous, coloured with watercolour pencils and blended with a water brush. I added some Glamour Dust to the sea for added sparkle.
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
I find that using watercolour pencils even after blending with water, doesn't bleed though onto the inside of the card, an important factor in One Layer Cards.
