More WOW with Swans

I drew these swans the other day and had to make a couple of cards with them.
For the first card I used 2 embossing folders to create a background image and simply stuck the cut out swans with foam pads.. adding the words on the side like a tab. I pierced the edges of the card just to add more texture - a really simple card..
This will be my 3rd submission to the
Less is more challenge this week.. White on white cards are so much fun to make! here is my White on white card No. 3

For the second card, I printed the swans out twice, one for the background and one to add the cut out swans over the top. I used Tim Holtz distress inks to create the background. I decided to use a very pale blue card to blend with the image adding a pale pearlescent green card under the punch out area to balance the card. Of course a little bit of glitter had to be added to the wings..and small amounts to the water too plus a few pearls.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today..
See you soon
