Wetlands Thank You

Sometimes cards look better in our heads than they do on actual paper. What do you think of this one?

Stamps: Wetlands, Work of Art
Paper: Pool Party A-2, Very Vanilla 5 1/4 x 4
Ink: Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit, Dusty Durango, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black
Technique: Masking, Sponging, Brayer
Accessories: Brayer, Sponge, Mask, Adhesive

So, I punched out a circle to mask my full moon. Then I thought it was too bright so I sponged it a bit to tone it down. 

I also need to make sure that when I use my brayer, my surface needs to be smoother than this. I'm not even sure where the lines are from. Maybe the woodgrain on my table? 

I imaged a more ombre effect on the background. Also a more staggering line on the sand. Still, when making a hand made card there is no right way. There are no mistakes, just creations. So, what do you really think?

Thanks for stopping by here.
