Michelle Zindorf held a class in my area a couple of years ago (at my house : ) ) and I always love to 'try' to apply what I learned from her!
I stamped and colored the Swan image, colored with Copics and Ranger Distress Markers. Then, I colored over the image with Versamark and clear embossed it.
I cut out a circle on a post-it note with a die, then placed it in the center and brayered over it. First, I brayered with Ranger Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, then Stormy Sky. Next, I added Faded Jeans to the outside edges and corners last to make the image 'pop'.
The cardstock is coordinations and I added a corner die for a final accent. I was going to try to add piercing across the entire top as an accent, but decided to stop after piercing the top corners.
I left off a sentiment so I can use this for any occasion- but think it would make a great Anniversary card......!
