Hello. I spent some time in my craft room yesterday and created this card:
I wanted to use this cute little duck from Spellbinders, so I die cut all the elements from some new colours from Concord & 9th.
The background was created using a stencil from Clearly Besotted, ink blending the umbrellas with Salvaged Patina Distress Ink, then stencilling some Ranger glitter paste on top of the umbrellas. Putting that aside to dry, I searched through the Color My Life app for a suitable sentiment, and this came up from Simon Says Stamp on one of their butterfly sets.
I stamped that in Versafine black onyx, and arranged everything onto the card base.
I felt the card needed something else, so I also die cut the umbrella from another Spellbinders set, and added that – thank goodness I didn’t glue the wing down completely on the duck – I was able to slot it in behind.
I feel that this little duck may be making some further appearances on my blog posts…..
