Swan Birthday Card - Three Muses Things with Wings Challenge
















I am entering this birthday card into The Three Muses Things with Wings challenge.  It was fun to make though it turned my hands blue...very blue!  The lovely swan is by Clarity Stamps, heat embossed silver and the sentiment uses 3 stamps by Waltzingmouse (from the Text It, Holiday Labels 14 and Teeny Trees sets)The background was created with Adirondack Denim dye ink, a brayer and sponge and the stars are just dots of glue sprinkled with various fine glitters.  I added a large dark blue blow, blue gems and metal charms to finish off this large card.

I hope everyone enlarges your card so as not to miss any of the fine details. Your swan in its sea of blue is majestic and the whole effect is superb.
Thankyou so much for joining in the challenge this week!!

Gorgeous scene Denise. I can 9magine how messy you got with all that ink but the end result is well worth it. The swan looks so serene - a lovely stamp.
