What I love about these sets is the fact that they go so well together. First, Swan Lake features a series of nature stamps that you can use to create your own Swan Lake scene! There's water hydrangea, cygnets, natural grasses, cattails and a hanging willow branch. This set is a perfect match for one of the new sentiment sets that Flourishes is releasing called Life Lines. All are beautiful nature inspired sentiments for those all occassion cards and creations!
Ok... moving on to my card!
When I looked at the new Swan Lake set, I saw an oval shape with bits and pieces of this set peaking through -- and so that is what I aimed to do! I stamped the swan, the grasses and the willow branch, colored it up with Copic Markers (Water, Violet, Fields, Cool Neutrals and the medium orange in the Tiger Lily collection -- all grouped by Flourishes) After I was done, I matted it up using some Webster's Pages decorative paper. For my shapes I used an oval Nestability die and a Big Scalloped Oval Nestie die. Add some sewing, paper piercing and a "delightful" sentiment with the new Life Lines set and... voila! You can't see it in my photo, but I did add some Crystal Glitter Glue to the flowers and foliage to give it a kind of fairy tale feel.
