Swan 3 of 6

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all as well as you can be on this grey day...hugs.

Sorry, I couldn't resist going back to my swans. This particular photograph I love, even though I took it myself LOL. He looks so magnificent in this pose! Just before I took this pic he was walking towards us and he looked quite threatening, then he rose up to his full height and, me being a short**** and a coward, I felt quite small so I backed off pronto!!! 
Anyhow, here he is .

Card used is my usual linencard, folded and cut to 7x5 for the basecard.
I feathered the swan as usual and printed him onto the same card, then cut using Spellbinders pierced rectangle dies, and attached him with sticky foam pads to give dimension.
Clear gems coloured with black Copic marker pen :o)

Wow - he certainly IS posing!! And well done you for turning tail and backing off... he must have been protecting something and was trying to warn you off!

He looks fab in this card though.. love it!
