Bird on gourd vines

Hello everyone, Kia here with a card to share.  I like to keep my cards CAS, Clean and Simple, which is what I have done with this card today.  I am working with Art Neko’s Framed Bird on Gourd Vine Stamp.  When I was reading up on Gourd Vines I found that there were both white and yellow flowers on these vines.  I very much like the look of the yellow flowers and read that these flowers are usually associated with the annual plants, which produce a rather bitter gourd.  But I loved the idea of the yellow flowers for my card, so yellow it was.  I thought using Zig brushes was best to use on this image, as they are perfect for detailed stamps, such as this stamp.  I did a couple of layers of colour and once finished, I added matting to my image using bazzill cardstock, picking colours that I used in the watercolour.  I then added some white Hemp Cording around the base.  I added another layer of white matting which I embossed to add more interest and attached the image to the left of the card on foam strips.  I hope you enjoy my card today and thank you for visiting with us.  I look forward to seeing you next time.
