Swan river

Swan River - Todays challenge at Creative Card Crew is to have a bird somewhere on your project. We are sponsored by the awesome Simon Says Stamp.

For this challenge, I made a center step card. These are so easy to make and so fun to recieve!

My image is a Phindy's Place image. I colored it with Copics.

I added Flower Soft to the flower box on the mill. I used a white poster paint pen to make the white bubbles/foam where the water is hitting the river. I also added some ultra fine glitter to the water.

I used more Flower Soft to make my tree a fall tree. This gives it such a nice texture.

My flower is one that I picked up at the scrapbooking convention. The flowers are made of ribbon and I thought it was just right for this fall scene.

  16. They way you embellish it inspires me a lot....but i suggest instead of green you should try light blue shade..it makes it more adorable...
