Whew! Sorry I've been gone so long. Our fabulous trip to the Sea of Cortez was followed with a very busy time filled with unexpected developments including a new job for me. I start it next week & hope life will find some sort of "normal" eventually. :) Meanwhile, I haven't stamped at all for WEEKS. That's simply no good. So, today I finally decided to break my stamper's block by creating a birthday card for a friend of mine. She's a huge fan of rubber ducks. In fact, I've even baked her a rubber duck cake. How could I not create a card to go with that cake?
That's why I decided to transform the XL Bird Punch into a ducky. Such fun! After I had the card assembled, I decided the big duck needed a little friend & so I punched out one wing from the XL Bird Punch & combined it with a candle flame from the Cupcake punch. Isn't he a little cutie?
My bubbles all sparkle thanks to a quick spritz of Shimmer Mist (Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol) and I used the edge of my ink pad to outline them all. For the inside, I inked up the little duck from Easy Events & left off his hat, umbrella, & sentiment. He's perfect inside! I hope my friend likes her ducks as much as I do!!
