Heartfelt Creations - Romantique Swans Swimming

Good Morning All! Hope you are all feeling festive now that we are in December? I have my Birthday this month too, which  gets mixed up in all the festive preparations!  I still have lots to do as always and the frosty weather is not helping!

Here is my project this week for Heartfelt Creations.  I wanted to use the beautiful swans and water stamps and created my own inked background.

This card is fairly easy to make and the instructions can be found below.  The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.

Card Size :    11 1/2cm x 11 1/2cm (4 1/2" x 4 1/2")
Create a card blank using white card.  Cut a piece of white card to measure 10 1/2cm x 10 1/2cm 
(4" x 4").  Using stencil tape, create a narrow edged frame on your card. Using the ink dusters, gently add colour to the card. Begin with the pink, then add blue to the lower half.  Add black ink to the water stamp and stamp several times on the lower half - any gaps I filled in using a Promarker pen. Remove the stencil tape carefully.  Using a black Promarker (with a fine nib) and a piece of spare card, create a frame around your work. Cut another piece of white card to cover the card front.  Use the ruler to create a pierced edge.  Adhere to the card using foam pads. Stamp the swans onto white card using black ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Die cut using the matching dies.  Add some detailing with a grey pen and colour in around the edges.  Add the main image to the card using foam pads and also the swans. Create a loopy bow from silver cord ribbon. Add to the card as shown.

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.
