Reflections on Swan Lake

May 15, 2017

I decided to stamp and colour the swans on both these cards, again from the Swan Lake set, in black. For the first card, I re-visited the reflection technique and an old favourite – Lovely as a Tree.

This last card was another CASE of a swap card I received at On Stage back in November from Ariana Brinkmeyer:

A Slider Card

I made this slider card for one of my young nephews last year. Josh liked it so much he took it to bed with him!
