I had this dot-embossed panel in my drawer and thought it would be perfect for Brenda’s (Benzi on SCS) challenge to the Stampin'Bs this week.
I stamped and then masked the swan from Mark’s Finest Papers’ Our Side of the Pond, stamping the reeds/cattails around her. Most of the coloring was done with sponges, except for the reeds which were colored with markers. The birthday sentiment is from a set to be released next week called Flourishes and Frame. I added some polka-dotted ribbon and that was it. Thanks, Brenda, for another good – and easy – challenge!
