12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 and 7

I struggled with those two days (sigh), in the end they turned out to be very different
Geese-A-Laying
The background are flowers from a children colouring book which I coloured with colouring pens. I stamped the geese (stamp: wood carved stamp), cut them out, embossed them and 'stickled' them. The egg basket is a Snag'em stamp - the eggs are also 'stickled' and the gras is a die-cut from Die-namics. With all the individual elements I created a little meadow scene, adding a couple little punched butterfly.

For Day 7 I found a lovely vintage image showing a Swan family and I couldn't resist using it for the ATC
Swan-A-Swimming
I layered the image on 7Gypsies paper which I distressed with distress ink and added some stamping (stamps: Artistic Outpost, Marianne Design). The ATC has been embellished with a little lace, some blings, resin flower and some punched branches. Have a lovely weekend, Petra.
