Wings of Possibilities!

This Technique Junkie Stamps April Release Swans - http://techniquejunkies.com/swans/ is such a different stamp.  And yet it is quite  versatile.   I stamped the swans in black Versafine and heat embossed clear embossing powder on white card stock.

Then I used a watercolor medium and painted over the swans and the background with wide sweeping brush strokes.  That way the  watercolor went in between the feathers on the swans.  I still wanted shimmer however.  So I used Gold Dust Shimmering Minx - http://techniquejunkies.com/gold-dust-minx-shimmering-inks/ - over the swans to further highlight and add that delightful shimmer to each swan.

Then I used my Gold Luna of Stella pen and went over the pale yellow background right in the damp watercolors. Delightful!

I layered the focal image on black card stock, added a narrow strip (1/2 inch wide!) of glimmer paper layered on black card stock.

The verse is Wings of Possibility - http://techniquejunkies.com/wings-of-possibility/ - a Technique Junkie stamp.  It just goes with this golden swan card!  Think of all of the possibilities awaiting each one of us!


Have a wonderful day -- and get inky!
