Wetlands on masked, sponged background

In need of a quick but effective birthday card (February seems to be a very busy month for birthdays!), I made this.  What I like about it most is that it's suitable for both genders!
SU, single layer card, masking, sponging, handmade birthday card, masculine card
An easy but effective single layer card - I used Shimmery White card
I simply masked off part of the card (in this case half of it) with some scrap paper and sponged on the colours.  I used shimmery white cardstock because it has a good weight for a single layer card but is also a very nice surface for sponging and watercolouring.

I started with Pear Pizzazz at the bottom then blended in some Sahara Sand followed by Soft Sky.  Then I brought some Marina Mist down from the top and added a tiny bit of Mossy Meadow to the bottom.

Having removed the mask, I then stamped the images from Wetlands with Archival Black ink.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the positioning exactly as I wanted it.

The last thing to add was the greeting from Happy Birthday Everyone.

All finished in no time flat!

Thanks for looking.
