Seven Swans

Double D continues with part 2 of its winter challenges this week and I decided to go with Day 7.

Twelve Days of Christmas
Days 7-12

A while ago I had found a free digital with swans and coloured it using my shimmery water colours. Forget where it came from so I can’t give credit. I added a slight touch of yellow to the necks of the swans. As well I had been playing with Distress oxide sprays and I had a piece of the blue left and I thought it would make a nice water background. It is quite shimmery as I had sprayed it with gold perfect pearl mist. I die cut various trees in different papers and adhered them to the card front. Then I added the water piece over which I popped up the fussy cut swans. I made my own sentiment with a line from the song using CorelDraw and I fussy cut this out in curves following the curved text. I stamped a couple of music notes and fussy cut those to add at each end of the sentiment strip. Added 3 tiny stars to some trees and it was finished. Fun to make this one.

  1. Great scene card. Everything is just flowing together from the serene swans to the waves of the sentiment foiled by the background trees. Awesome card for the challenge.


  2. Yes I have and I’ve decided this card would make a fun winter Birthday so it will be mailed to a friend in Germany whose birthday is in early January. Trying to get the early ones out now else they will either be missed or very late due to the amount of mail in the system.
