The Riverbank Swans

Hi everyone.  I have just made this card using stamps from Craft Consortium called The Riverbank.  I bought these a while ago and this is the first time I have used them.  I thought if I made a pair of swans this would be good as an anniversary card, especially as they stay as a couple for life.


I stamped the swans and the lily pads with Versafine Smokey Gray and coloured using my Distress inks and a waterbrush with Hickory Smoke as shading on the swans, and Ripe Persimmon on their beaks, which I also used on the water lily flowers with also Peeled Paint for the leaves.  I then coloured the water and background using Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Adirondack Sunshine Yellow.  I then added the dragonflies and used more Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon to their wings   I finished by adding the sentiment using more of the Smokey Gray ink.

  6. I have been eyeing up this set too Pat - I love the swans and they are the symbol of my town. I pass a pair of nesting swans on a river walk I do quite regularly too - all the omens are there!!! I love the watercolouring on your card. It gives a lovely delicate feel. Vicky x
