Cheery Lynn Designs May Release 2016 - Blog Hop



Hi Everyone, thanks for stopping by today. We are all so excited at Cheery Lynn Designs to be sharing with you our inspiration using the new May 2016 release. I am first up on the blog hop but if you get a little lost on route please just link back to Cheery Lynn Designs.


I was so excited to find out there was a few new birds in this latest release. If you follow me regularly you will know how much I adore Cheery Lynn's Bird dies and this Swan is an absolutely beautiful die to work with, filled with grace and elegance for any crafty project.


I die cut out my Swan 5 times in heavy cardstock and on 3 of the layers I cut off the head and neck part.


You will see on this photo I fluffed out the feathers to give a 3 D look and started to layer on 3 die cut body parts, finishing off with a complete Swan on my top section.


I shaded the Swans beak with Black and Orange Copics and a Fineliner pen to highlight the detail. Finishing off with a small drop of Black Liquid Pearls for the eye.


My background was shaded with Distress Inks, adding my Cattails and Reeds which were finished off with a little Flower Soft and Distress Glitter.
You will also notice a touch of Glossy Accents on my wave for a watery look. 


My Sun was made from the  Sunflower Die adding a stamped sentiment to the centre, finishing off with a few Dragonflies.

I'd love for you to leave me a comment so I know you have stopped by, I always love to read them.

Please carry on this hop where you will see more of the New Release dies showcased by my Teamies. Finishing back at Cheery Lynn Designs for a chance to win a $20 shopping Spree.

Your next stop on the Blog Hop is my talented Teammie LISA.

Crafty Hugs,
Julie xx
