Swan Song

Welcome to another Dies R Us Inspiration blog post.
It's Judy here with you, and today I have a little scene card for you.

Here is how I made this card.

First I got out some Distress Inks and sponges. I made a mask with a circle die to mask off the moon, and tore some paper as a mask for the land. After sponging the background I removed the moon mask and lightly sponged with Black Soot to give the moon some dimension.

Here's how it turned out.

Then I went about doing all my die cutting. Now it was time to put it all together. here' s a close up of that beautiful swan by Dee's Distinctive.

These are the dies I used.
