Heron on the Lake

.. is the name of a local restaurant, not that I've ever been there. But I do have a rather nice stamp of a heron in the bulrushes.


The stamp is a very old Linda Luckin design, no longer available. I love the serenity of it!

For this card I made a background by blending shades of turquoise and green ink, using a sponge dauber then stamped the image and added a couple of metallic dragonfly brads.

I am sharing this with
