Good afternoon everyone and happy Sunday,
DT Lyndsey here and today I want to share with you this sweet card using the adorable Lucky Ducks stamp and die set. I am totally in love with this gorgeous set and can see plenty of cards in my future with it.
I created a little scene with the ducks and did a bit of masking to add the flower clumps behind the ducks, and then added the pond in with my markers. I coloured the ducks up as Mallards (proper ducks) for something a bit different and love how they turned out!
The whole image was coloured using my Spectrum Noir markers (colours listed below in order of lightest to darkest)
Face - LG2, LG3 LG5
Belly - TN7, TN9, TN8
Body - BG1, BG3, BG5
Beak- CT1, CT4, GB5
Bullrush - EB6, EB3, EB7
Grass - CG1, CG2, DG4
Pond - TB2, TB3, TB4 , TB8
I cut out the scene using the 3rd largest A2 Layering Die and then used the same sized A2 Nesting Frame Die to cut a frame from white card, adding it to the image with foam tape.
I stamped the "Hey!" sentiment in the top right hand corner as I thought it just matched the scene perfectly. Now I do have a little chuckle when I look at this card, just because the sentiment reminds me of the Duck Song, and I dud have it stuck in my head for ages afterwards 🤣.
If you've not heard of the song, here's a snippet of the lyrics!
The duck walked up to a lemonade stand
"Hey! (Bum bum bum) Got any grapes?"
The man said
"No we just sell lemonade. But it's cold
And it's fresh
And it's all home-made. Can I get you
The duck said,
'Til the very next day.
(Bum bum bum bum ba-bada-dum)
