Three Little Cygnets for Easter - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #311

What are Cygnets you might ask?

Cygnets are baby swans, and technically they are covered in a gray down (I had to look this up).

One of the stamps of the "Swan Lake" stamp set features 3 little Cygnet swimming in a row.  They became the focal point for the card I made as a Design Team member for Try Stampin' on Tuesday #311.  I used the sketch made by Vicki          .

And since "Plaid" was optional theme, the DSP I used had a plaid pattern.

You will probably notice that using my artistic license, I coloured the baby swans yellow instead of gray.

I coloured the Cygnets using various colours of ink pads and a blender pen. They were masked in order to add the flowers.

Texture was added to the sky using Marina Mist ink on the dot stamp from Avant-Garden (SAB).

I stamped the sentiment (from Little Cuties) under the little guys, after which I die cut with the stitched circle framelit and using dimensionals, adhered the die cut to a Sweet Sugarplum scallop circle.

The Sweet Sugarplum  base card was layered with Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Hexagon Texturized Embossing Folder. A piece of Succulent DSP matted with Sweet Sugarplum cardstock with a piece of 3/8" ruffled Sweet Sugarplum ribbon wrapped around it was adhered to the left side of the embossed layer.

I love glitter on cards, and this card was no exception.  So, Dazzling Details was added to the flowers and the water under the Cygnets.  As well gold metallic enamel dots was added on both sides of the sentiment.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Swan Lake, Avant-Garden, Little Cuties
Inks: Black Memento, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Pacific Point, Tangelo Twist.
Papers: Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White, Succulent DSP
Accessories: Stitched circle framelits, Blender pen, gold metallic enamel shapes, dimensionals, Hexagon dimensional embossing folder, 3/8" ruffled Sweet Sugarplum ribbon, Layered circle framelits, Dazzling details,


So, get out your stamps, paper, and ink, and make a card using the above sketch.  When it is finished, upload it to the Try Stampin' on Tuesday blog or the Facebook page.  You get 2 weeks to create something.  At the end of the two weeks, 3 top picks are selected and posted on the blog and on Facebook.  Who knows, it could be you.
