Blue Swan Background - Pinkfresh Card

Good morning!Back again today to share some more of the MANY cards I made right before Creativation using some BRAND NEW Pinkfresh Studio stamps! They were for display at the show and I had so much fun playing with all the new stamps and dies. This card is actually one of the ones I heard they got the most questions about how I put it together, so it seemed like a good idea to share it here!

I started off with the adorable new Itty Bitty Elements stamp set, and stamped the swan in a repeating pattern using Hero Arts Ombre Ink. I turned the ink pad after the center row so that my top and bottom were the lightest spot, and the centers were the deepest. I planned on keeping it very clean and simple at this point - but it kept feeling like it needed something more - so I kept adding to it! The little stars came from the new Magical Unicorn Stamp set, the little circles and sentiment came from the new Word Series: Brilliant, and the soft gray circles (a bit hard to see in the photos) is from the new Birds and Bows stamp set - as well as the dotted lines that run in a row under the swans to mimic water (also a bit hard to see in the photos).  

Once all everything was stamped on the main panel, I also added a bit of gold splatter with my Starry Colors Palette. While that dried, sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock with one edge trimmed at an angle. I die cut the front panel with a Stitched Rectangle die before mounting with foam on a SSS Fog cardbase.
