Oh what a lovely set this is. I knew what I wanted to do when I saw it and I hope my end result is inspiring to you.  I used my Mirror stamp Pad and stamped the image in Momento Tuxedo Black on the mirror pad then on my white cs. I inked the image again and stamped it directly onto the white cs.  I used copics to color and added some stickles along the shore line.  I wanted this to appear as 2 swans swimming along thinking of one another. Hope I succeeded.
