Peaceful Swan

To see the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge post please scroll down.

I made this card for the Release Party contest at StampTV. The contest challenge is to use 3 different DP on the card. All three of these papers were from one of the new Basic Grey paper packs called Sweet Threads. I love those colors and seemed perfect for the swan. 


I colored the swan and the water with Distress Inks and pen nubs. I really like this technique - fun and a different than coloring with Copics. I then embossed the image using UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) to make it look like water. 


The sketch is for the Mojo Monday Challenge.
