Again, who knew there was a “Rubber Ducky Day”? Well, it’s today! The challenge this week over at Crazy4Challenges is to put a duck or some other feathered friend on your project. If you’ve been following, then you know I’m crazy for “The Paper Shelter”. All through the Holiday Season I was using digital stamps from this company on many of my cards for Christmas. This “Duck” image is called “Most Adorable Duck“. I’ve been taking classes from Alyce at Kit and Clowder and applying the great technique’s I’m learning. Alyce’s mantra is “Practice, practice, practice” Note: Whenever I get a new digi stamp I print both the black and white and the colored version. I then usually copy the artist’s coloring the first time I color an image. It helps me see where the artist’s light source is coming from:
Step 1: Size, print and color the image. I used Prismacolor Premium Pencils.
Step 2: Cut out the colored image with Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1116 – Stitched Circles:
Apply 250.5 Diarylide Yellow PanPastel with a make up sponge to the edges and blending into the center.
Step 3: With the largest die in the below set 1254 – Entwined Circles cut one pc. with light blue cardstock:
Step 4: From the die set below cut 1 of all 3 of the smaller pcs. from white cardstock and color with Copic Markers :
Step 5: Cut both small butterflies 1011 – Garden Notes – Bugs and Butterflies from white cardstock and color with Copic Markers.
Step 6: The card assembly.
6A: Make a base card by cutting a pc. of 12″ x 12″ White Soft Finish Cardstock by Elizabeth Craft Designs in half and scoring one half at 6″ along the 12″ side.
6B: Cut a pc. of designer paper with the largest die from the below set:
6C: Adhere this pc. centered on the white card base.
6D: Adhere the “Duck Image Circle” centered as shown, then the light blue “Entwined Circle”.
6E: Add the “cattail die pcs. and butterflies” as shown.
Thank you so much for taking a look and I hope you’ll join us over at the “Crazies” challenge. We can’t wait to see what you create.
