Card with swans

Hiya! We’re down to the last MFT March Release Countdown Day and I’m sharing a greeting card with two beautiful swans.

They’re from the Tranquil Swans stamp set. After stamping and die cutting them, I colored them with the following Copic markers: W3, W1, W00, YR65, YR61, R20 and R00.

Next, I went to work on the background. I used quite a few Distress Oxide Inks to blend that romantic sunset:

  • Abandoned Coral
  • Worn Lipstick
  • Spiced Marmalade
  • Fossilized Amber
  • Squeezed Lemonade

Although you can barely see the water, I used three tones for it: Evergreen Bough, Salvaged Patina and Tumbled Glass. I used one of the dies from the Under the Sea Die-namics to cut the waves. I also added a layer of Translucent Vellum.

After this, I die cut my panel of Vintage Timber Card Stock with dies from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and Stitched Rounded Arch STAX Die-namics.

As a last touch I added three stamped flowers and a couple of matching enamel hearts. I hope you enjoyed my card. Head on to the MFT Blog and YouTube channel for more inspiration!
