And again

This card is very different and I have used one of my favourite pieces of kit. About 10 years ago I bought a roll of low tack paper and its still going. In general you never need to use very much but it can make such a difference.
For this card I cut off a 2" wide strip.... so not much then tore it in half to give a wavy line. I stuck the bottom half down then tore the other half into 3 pieces so that I could arrange them them to give different waves on the top, I didn't want a mirror image.
Once the low tack paper was stuck I got going with the pencils, starting with the brown on the bottom edge and Pacific Point on the top, followed by Bermuda Bay and Calypso coral. Then I have followed the way I wrote about yesterday being careful to clean the brush but still mixing the colours at the edges of each one. For this I have used a small paint brush but don't those pencil colours look good.

For the stamping I have used wetlands for the wading birds and wheat stand then High tide for the flying birds.
