A Thankful Swan - Fab Friday #105

Swan Lake arrived on my door step yesterday, and I wanted to play with it immediately! The sketch challenge with Fab Friday provided me with the opportunity to do so. Seeing the swan in the water, with the little ones by her side immediately brought back memories of seeing the real birds on Lake Ontario when I was staying with friends. It was a cool day, and the wind was strong, but the swan and her goslings' swam bravely on.  Memories --funny things aren't they?


Card:
Marina Mist card stock, layered with Whisper White and then Scenic Scenery DSP formed the basis of this A2 card.
The Serene Scenery layer was embossed with the Sea side embossing folder making it look like waves on a lake.

Art Piece:
The images were stamped with Black Memento onto a Whisper White circle die cut using the largest of the Circle Stitched die. Part of the right side of the die was trimmed as per the sketch above. Masking was used to place the images where I wanted them and then they were coloured with ink pads and a blender pen.  The water lily was stamped on a separate scrap piece of Whisper White, coloured, cut out and adhered to the bottom of the circle.
The sky was sponged while the clouds were stamped using the cloud stamp from the "Lift Me Up" stamp set. Each cloud was accented with Smoky Slate ink.




The art piece was adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

Sentiment and Embellishment:
The "thank you" was stamped with Marina Mist ink on a piece of Pool Party card stock, punched with the Classic Label punch, and adhered to a strip of Whisper White.
Before attaching this sentiment label to the card front, a small piece of gold metallic ribbon (SAB) was fan folded and adhered to the wrong side near the right end.
Dimensionals were used to adhere this to the card front and the art piece.
A bow made of 1/8" Stitched Smoky Slate ribbon was added with a glue dot.


What's a card without glitter?  So some Clear Wink of Stella was added in some places.
