Sandpipers from Stampin' Up!'s Wetlands Set

Here is our final card from the Wetlands stamp set class.  This class was really a hit.  Everyone enjoyed seeing all the different looks from just one $16.95 (US-clear) set.
 First we stamped the birds twice across a piece of Whisper White cardstock using VersaMark and embossed them using clear embossing powder.  We then broke out our brayers and colored the entire piece using Island Indigo ink.  We then took Midnight Muse ink and worked down from the top very slowly so most of the ink ended up at the very top.  We stopped at the waterline.  I came back along the bottom with the Island Indigo so the color would be a bit deeper there as well.   The sentiment was stamped and then cut out using the Apothecary Accents framelit.  I then cut two more out of Midnight Muse. and layered these behind so they appeared to be matted.  You can barely see at the top where they overlap.  A bit of trimming needed to be done as well.
