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.
