If you haven't already commented on yesterday's card, you have until noon CST today to do that so you could win it. I'll be back after that to announce the winner.
This is the card I made for Michelle's challenge at Splitcoaststampers Dirty Girl's challenges. Her challenge (and it's definitely a challenge!) was to make a masculine card. Usually when I go to make a masculine card I pull out my Lovely As A Tree set and then go to the store and buy one! LOL! Really, masculine cards are hard for me. I wanted to do something besides my trees so I rummaged through some old stamps and found this duck in some cat tails. I don't know if this is a mallard duck or not, but I colored him as if he were.
I don't know who makes the stamp since the one I have is unmounted and my unmounted stamps are not organized by company and there's no identifying marks on the back. I colored the image with colored pencils. The top corners are cuttlebug dies. The background is stamped with Stampin Up's mesh background stamp. I stamped the image with close to cocoa ink. I was afraid black ink would make the green color on his head hard to see.
See my little "thinking of you"? Notice that it's AIRBRUSHED?! Yes! I was lucky enough to get an air can and trigger to use with my copics for my birthday. (Thanks Claudette!) I will say using those things definitely takes practice. Lots of practice!
I hope all of you are staying cool in these hot dog days of summer. Thanks for looking!
