For extra cookies my card shows what happens the year after Beauty kept walking and walking. She found her lake, she found another swan, and along came some little cygnets :D/
It's a bit of a scrappy card - computer problems, short of time, wanted to combine with yesterday's TLC, and after I saw the teapot I really wanted to use the stamp Pidgesmom sent me for Christmas...
A2 base, Bazzill. I cut off part of the edge with a Spellbinders die which was out on my desk already, embossed and pierced it, and then with the die still there to mask it I stamped Rubbernecker Cheesecloth over it for texture with Mowed Lawn.
Sentiment is MFT.
Swans are Picture Show, stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Pumice Stone, Festvie Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Salty Ocean and Forest Moss. Cut with Spellbinders Deckle rectangles, edges sponged with Salty Ocean and popped up on foam.
Primas with a yellow stamen punch for the centre and Spellbinders flourishes whch reach out over the BG Picadilly I used for the inside.
Be back later - got to sort out my internet problem before it drives me crazy switching in and out.
