12 Days of............Day 7

Here is my Day 7 of the 12 Days......... series. Once again I have been a bit creative with my bird stamp. You will have to think swan rather than dove !!!

I started with white cardstock and I made the waves using a damask heart stamp from Elusive Images which I stamped in archival black ink. Making a mask and stamping the top of the heart to make waves. These were coloured with Caran D'Ache water soluble wax crayons and a waterbrush. I used blue & green. Once dry I then used a few colours of Versamagic chalk ink and some clear stamps (?) to stamp a few layers of borders for the top half of the plate (Aegean blue, Aloe Vera, Purple Hydrangea & Pumpkin Spice).

I then overstamped with a text plate (PaperArtsy) in fawn Impress dye ink, and a ruler stamp (PaperArtsy) in chartreuse Impress dye ink at the very top.

The text was diecut using 'The Ginchiest' text from Sizzix and a Bigshot from brown dots printed paper and stuck in place with glue pen. The chipboard number 7 was coloured with tan ink and overstamped with text and applied with Glossy Accents to finish.

The swans....ahem !! were stamped using archival black ink and a polymer stamp (?) 7 times onto pale blue card and trimmed out. They were applied over the 'waves' with foam pads and small amounts of stickles added between the waves. The card was edged with cottage ivy Memento ink pad.
