A play on words and a bit of masking

March 26, 2016

Hello everyone!
This is Maike from Maikreations and for my fourth card (I can't believe that the month went by so quickly) I used the set "Lucky Duck" once more and did quite a bit of masking.


I knew I wanted the sentiment to be below the ducks so I made sure to leave enough space. Once I had stamped all the images, I coloured them in using Copic markers. Next I added the grass at the shore and the water. When I die cut the letters for the sentiment I deliberately die cut the first ones in capital letters to emphasize the play on words here. The sentiment means "Finally you are here", but usually you would spell the first word a bit differently. I purposely misspelled it and wrote "ENTlich", because in German the word "Ente" means duck. After I had heat embossed the second part of the sentiment I adhered the die cut letters and glued the panel to a white card base.


It has been fantastic being guest designer here at the Gerda Steiner Designs blog for the month of March. Have a very happy Easter everyone and happy crafting ;o)
