Cards in Envy Challenge: When Nature Calls

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge .  This week our theme is “When Nature Calls.”  This can be anything you find in nature.

As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.

For today’s card I wanted to create an outdoor scene using my Kuretake Gamsi Watercolors.  I was inspired by a Jill Foster for Penny Black video tutorial. The birds are Penny Black “Nature ‘s Friend,” and the sentiment is Club Scrap.

Hope you like it and enter a card with us at Cards in Envy!

  7. Whoa. I’m calling that a river scene, and you’ve achieved the river banks and calm shimmer of the water wonderfully. Just gorgeous. Thanks for joining us at the MMCC this month.


  8. The watercolor background is fantastic! I love how the blues and greens are “playing well together” (to use an elementary teacher term, lol).
