Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #201 Animal Magic

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #201  Animal Magic
Kim is hosting our challenge this fortnight and  her challenge is 'Animal Magic' We would love to see your creations  based on an animal theme. Please make sure that your project has an animal big enough for us to see. We are excluding insects,  so no butterflies, bugs or bee's etc for this challenge.  Your project may still have them but not as your animal.

I choose a swan and her family for my 'animal'. A swan is from  the Kingdom of Animial so I thought it would suffice. Definitely not an insect.

I created the background by sponging  the sky and water with several shades of blue ink
. The swan and family are from a Flourishes stamp set called 'Swan Lake'.   I stamped the top shoreline  with a grass stamp from an old Kitty Kits stamp set and hand drew some of the foliage over the stamped image.  The bottom foliage is stamped from the same  Flourishes 'Swan Lake' stamp set. The leaves in the top left corner are from a Memory Box die set titled 'Fabulous Phlox'. The 'peaceful waters' letters are from an alphabet die set.
