Great Blue Heron

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for a new challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. Today it's another fun Tic Tac Toe board.....Choose three items (across, down, or diagonally) to include on your creation, then come by the blog and link it up!

I chose to go with: Birds -- Use Dimension -- Texture, and I'm featuring the beautiful Repeat Impressions stamp 1704-P, Great Blue Heron.
After stamping my image on watercolor paper, I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and inked the edges with walnut stain distress oxide. I then  popped it up off my background using foam mounting tape. The corrugated cardboard is wrapped with natural colored burlap string and layered on a polka dot background with a diamond border peeking out the top.
