Swan Lake

A friend gave me this stamp set and I really love it. It is Flourishes Swan Lake. It is perfect to use this week for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge #110 to do masking. Now, that is a fun challenge. Thanks, Maki.

 I stamped my swan, masked it off, then added the background of grasses, flowers, and rocks. This was using only two stamps from the set. I really like how it turned out.

This really turned out pretty!! Great coloring on that image and I love the blue colors and matching ribbon!
We had thunderstorms and hail last night that covered the ground in white, and this morning we woke up to snow covering the ground white again! Wha??! This is spring? LOL

You've created such a pretty scene Benzi, and I love the colours that give such a lovely light and springy feel to the card. Thanks so much for joining us at Jac-inks Challenge #4, and please forgive the late comment - I've been away for 2 weeks.
