Just Ducky Card


Hello! In keeping with my plan to use more of my unused supplies,  I am using NBUS Repeat Impressions Bottoms Up stamp with another RI Duck Stamp and a new Gina K sentiment from Scripty Sentiments.  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and Cottage Ivy (Green head only) inks on White CS and the embossed with Clear EP.  The heat embossing was not really necessary but it gave a sharper image.   I then colored with Copics and a white pen. Did some doodling for waves.  Embossed some clouds with an EF just for the fun of it and then attached the image to a Spruce Green card base....picking up the color on the Mallard duck.  With this sentiment choice, I thought the card would be appropriate for someone moving or going on a trip or just achieving an accomplishment. Or whatever makes one happy!  This card made me happy!
Challenges:
The House That Stamps Built: Designer's Choice Challenge DCC13 Things with Wings
Stamp, Ink, Paper: Challenge 131 Emboss It.  Used both heat and dry embossing.
The Male Room: Challenge 76 New Beginnings.  My card would be appropriate for some one starting a new beginning such as a new job, etc.  This is the first time for me to enter this challenge. Just found it.


 Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Love the ducks! That is a great idea to only emboss a few of those clouds. I have that embossing folder and appreciate the new idea on how to use it!

Fun little scene...it reminds me of a cross stitch picture I did many years ago...I just love those little duck tails popping up out of the water! Thanks for playing with us at As You See It this week!

What a fabulous card! It would definitely work for anyone, but I see it as a perfect masculine card! The little line of duck butts is so fun! : ) And the font on that sentiment is beautiful! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
