Lucky Duck

This was made for a Card Party for a group I belong to. A card party works like this - a group of people sign up. Then each week one person is showered with cards from the others. This continues on until all of those signed up have had their turn at being showered and pampered with cards.

I used the Pond Pals set from SweetNSassy Stamps. This is the only set I own right now, but there are quite a few others on my ever growing wish list. I colored my duck in with my Copic Caio markers. The colors used are Golden Yellow Y17, Frost Blue B00, Cadmium Orange YR07. I also used the Frost Blue Copic to 'ground' my duck - kind of like a puddle.

I used a sketch (SC187) from SCS for this card. You can find this sketch here and then check out all the other sketches. These are great to help jumpstart you if you are needing a starting point. I really liked how this card turned out. The patterned paper is from the Target $1 spot and is so fun! I added a bit of glitz to the dragonfly's wings and trail with a Sakura Glitter Pen. I also sponged the main image with Taken with Teal ink.
