The 12 Days Of Christmas – Day 7

December 31, 2018 — 2 Comments

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me, seven swans-a-swimming…

7 Swans Swimmings Artist Trading Card by John Bloodworth Gentleman Crafter

Our final constant before the remaining verses decend into a free-for-all is the swans swimming. Bit of a weird gift this one. I mean, it assumes that I have a lake into which I can put the swans …


Carol aside, I should let you know that I used the 12 Days Of Christmas stamp set that came free with Issue 63 of Creative Stamping Magazine.

A line was drawn at the side of the Artist Trading Card and the sentiment stamped in the space created. This area was then masked off and the main design was stamped across the remaining space.

I then used brush pens to add the water detail and a glittery brush pen to colour in the swan. Must admit, the glittery looks rather dark and grey in the picture but in real life it’s lighter and sparklier – you’ll have to use your imagination.


Anyway, I guess I’d best fill the bath for the swans so, until Day 8, ta-taa.
