Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge

Card #1

Card #2

I am so excited to share with you some awesome, fun news!!!  I was selected by the talented Laurie Wilson, to be apart of her Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge DT !  Can you believe it!!?!?!?? I am sooo excited! 

This is the adorable image that Laurie sent us.  Isn't this ducky adorable!?   I had so much fun watercoloring this image on the first card and using my copics on the second card.  On the first card I was going for a slightly vintage look.   I left the colors a little mutted...I love the look. The second card is a bit more cheery and still it has a vintage flare.  How, sweet is that!

Deets on Card #1:   Image:  Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge Digital Image by Laurie Wilson.   Paper:  Card Base from SU! So Saffron, Cosmo Cricket Mini Deck - Nutmeg and Early Bird Collections, Drk Choco CS from PTI, Printed image on 80lb watercolor paper. Ink: SU! reinkers - So Saffron, Pacific Blue, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust.  Accessories:  Gross grain ribbon from PTI-Auqa Mist, and SU! scallop punch.  The sentiment is printed on the same watercolor paper as the ducky and I used Another Typewriter font.

Deets on Card #2:  I used the same adorable image from Laurie Wison and printed him on Gina K's Pure Luxery card stock and colored him with my Copics.  I used my exacto knife and cut a small slit on each side of his neck to insert my ribbon and tied a bow.  I used my new October Afternoon Designer paper - Ducks in a Row and Road map. (Love their papers!) The sentiment is hand written using signo white gel pen.

Thank you for stopping by today and Many Blessings!!!
