WS: Animals

it is no secret that I am crazy about swans…

that is what I chose to play with for this weeks’ Wednesday Stamper challenge

for my postcard I stitched cheesecloth…old lace…bits of netting and wide rickrack onto watercolor weight paper…

the pink fringe at the bottom is from some amaretti cookies I had long ago…

the wrappers came in different colors…

a real bonus to get delicious cookies AND pretty papers…

the frill at the left is old crepe paper with a bit of faux greenery and old flower trim…

the swan is a packing tape transfer…

Nick Bantock’s Paris stamp along with a couple of chalk pencils finished off my pinned on tag…

  9. Patty; I’ve done this packing tape transfer many times in my earlier art days and keep forgetting about it. Thanks for the reminder with the video, too! It’s a great technique and I love how you used it. Your swan postcard is beautiful – love the cheesecloth addition! Have a joyous day! xxoo

    I’m always on the lookout for a “Patty Swan” How do you know where your Swan stash is? I can never find things I save!

  20. Here it is Saturday morning already, and I’m just now getting here. Your use of recycled materials really impresses me. The way you put everything together astounds me, too. You have a genuine eye for that sort of thing, too. Your packing tape transfer is PERFECT. I’ve never had such good luck as you have with that technique. All around gorgeous.

  21. That’s so creative in fact I thought it was a 3d swan until I read that you’d transfered it with packing tape. Very clever. Lovely piece.

  24. Great minds . . . . I had to chuckle when I read that you used a bit of Amaretti cookie paper in this piece! I, too, have collected those lovely tissue papers to recycle into artwork. What’s not to love about this special postcard — it has two of my favorite things . . . . swans and the cookie papers. (BTW – I DO love to eat those little cookies with a good cup of tea!) Hugs, Terri xoxo
