Seasonal, Spring, Stamp Francisco, Water Colored Cards

Covered Bridge in April

Doesn’t this card make you long for the warmer days of spring?  My sister-in-law requested a birthday card using a covered bridge for my brother’s April birthday; thankfully, I have this stamp made by Stamp Francisco and enjoyed creating this just for him!  I heat-embossed the image in black onto Bristol Vellum surface cardstock, then created the sky using Ranger Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Stormy Sky.  After that I lightly colored the barn with several shades of gray and brown Zig Clean Color brush markers, using a water brush to soften the color.  Finally, I lightly sponged a spot of Fossilized Amber into the sky to denote a peek of the sun.  I think my brother will really like this!
