The adorable little ducks that are part of the Scrapping for Less exclusive stamp set, “Just Ducky” are sooooo stinkin’ cute! As a guest designer for this month, I wanted to do some simple Copic coloring and just let the cuteness take center stage for this encouragement card.
I colored up the duck tucked into the upturned umbrella with the following Copic colors to match the patterned plaid papers from the same Scrapping for Less collection:
Duck: Y13, Y15, YR00, YR16
Umbrella: B00, B12, YG03, YG25, RV52, RV55
Puddle that I doodled in with a Copic Multiliner Pen in 0.03 pt and re-outlined with a Faber-Castell XS point PITT Artist Pen: BG32 and BG23
I also added white highlight marks to the umbrella and the duck’s bill with a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen.
I used the Diemond Dies Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circle Nesting Die Set to cut out the image as well as die cut a frame for the image with purple handmade paper (for some added texture). I then used a plaid patterned paper and a striped pattern paper from this month’s Scrapping for Less Kit and covered the card front with these two patterned papers (about 2/3 and 1/3). I positioned a thin strip from more of the purple handmade paper between the two patterned papers to create a clean separation. Then I positioned the framed image centered on the card and overlapping the two patterned blocks.
For the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the Scrapping for Less add-on kit that says, “Don’t let life’s puddles get you down.” I used another scrap of the striped paper to coordinate the inside liner with the card front and added a similar purple strip to edge the striped paper from the white of the card liner. Lastly, as a finishing touch, I used Ranger Multi-Matte Medium to adhere 7 sequins on the card front to add a little sparkle and interest.
