Hello Duck

March 11, 2016 0 Comments

Hello everyone!
This is Maike from Maikreations with a new card - this time using the adorable "Lucky Duck" set.


First I stamped the cute diving duck and masked it off. In order to create the background I started with the bottom part first using three different shades of blue Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire and added a few drops of water next. I let the droplets sit for about a minute before I took them off with a tissue. Next I masked the water area as well and added a layer of Mustard Seed before placing a circle mask on top. Because I wanted to create the look of a sunset I used red and orangy colours: Spiced Marmelade, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple and a tiny, tiny bit of Seedless Preserves at the very top.


When everything was dry I coloured the duck in using Copic markers and also die cut the word hello from the bottom part of the panel. I adhered some vellum behind the panel to be able to stick the inner parts of the letters back where they belonged. Then I placed an orange piece of cardstock behind the area with the die cutting to make it look like the red from the sun set would shine through the vellum. Now all that was left to do was to glue the little fish all around the die cut sentiment and to adhere the finished panel to the vanilla card base.


Happy crafting everyone ;o)))
