Anniversary Swan


The color challenge this week, over at StampTV is black, white, and kraft. I had made one card so far, using Gina K. Design stamps, but I really have been trying to get some of my unmounted mystery stamps inked. I have had this pretty swan laying on my desk for days and thought it needed to get inky!
My middle border was stamped in tuxedo black Memento ink. The image was repeated from the new stamp set called Lace Edges, from Flourishes. The sentiment are words from their taglines set that is also a new release.
I pulled out an older set from Fancy Pants to get the flourish stamped across the top. My image was colored with neutral Copic Markers. Smoky and clear gems were used to halo the image.
Hope to see you again soon!
