Masculine Quiet Waters

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! My Grand Kids are here and we are having a blast, but I had made this card a while ago and wanted to share it with you now. I wanted a masculine rendition of this fabulous June released set from Our Daily Bread Designs. If I haven't mentioned it before, I LOVE this set! LOL! I know I have mentioned it but I really do!

For this card I used a Navy base from my stash, and the DP is from K&Co Citronella Pack. I loved the swirly blue because it is so water like... and the green just makes me think of a lush meadow. I stamped the image on H2O paper with Archival Jet Black Ink and watercolored with inks. The colors I used were Soft Sky, Bordering Blue, Blue Bayou, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and More Mustard. The ribbon is from Michaels and reminds me of a tie my hubby has. I added Dew Drops from the 'Lily Pad" colors by The Robin's Nest.
