This week our cards are headed off to Pearland Texas, to the Aunt of Cindy (Mothermark).Martha's DH recently passed away from a heart attack, while they were visiting NYC. Martha is in needs of a healthy dose of Teapotter love.
This is the second swan I did this past weekend. The first was a white one on the same shaving creamed bg, but just wasn't very visible, so I did another in black. This shaving cream bg was done last year in October, while I was visiting my Mom. Instead of using inks, we used paints. Either way works nicely.
The swan is from an old Can Do pattern book, and no longer available.
The tulips are from a stamp from Stampa Rosa and is no longer available. They are framed, but I fussy cut them for this card. They are colored with Tombow Markers. IRL they are pink, not the coral that you see here.
I need to get a grass strip die, it would have been perfect here.

Jennifer, another lovely card with your expert stitching. The stylized swan is exquisite in its graceful curves and your stitching is beautiful and perfect. Love the addition of the cloisonne tulips and striped bg to complete the card.
