Peaceful...

Hi, everyone! Sooooooo thrilled to be designing for SNSS this month...... thanks for making me feel so welcome!
The beautiful swan set released this month has been so fun to work with. I love working with bird and animal images, and creating a scene around a focal image. One way you can achieve a reflected image is to stamp the swan image, ink up again and stamp the image onto a solid stamp, then use the solid stamp to stamp the image in reverse. **Make sure you mask the first stamped image so your second image doesn't overlap.

I watercolored this image with reinkers and Inktense pencils using a water brush. The card base is embossed with a Fiskars texture plate.
Thanks for stopping in.... see you next week!
