Ducky Punch Art

Wow…sorry it has been several days since I've posted.  I have been busy creating, mostly things for classes and convention!  I'll be showing them next week while I'm gone. 

 

My punch class did this card last month.  I took inspiration from a couple cards I saw with this baby duck punch art and created my version of him splashing in a little pond!  I think he is SO cute!

 

 

The base is Tempting Turquoise cardstock and I layered on Daffodil Delight.  I used the plaid pattern from Pawsitively Prints II (now retired).  I freehand cut the "pond" from Tempting Turquoise and sponged around the edges with Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink.  The two "splashes" are the wing from the Bird Punch, also sponged.  I wanted something that resembled waves in the pond and we don't have Tempting Turquoise Ribbon, so I used a sponge dauber and Tempting Turquoise Ink to color my White Taffeta Ribbon.  I applied a length of Sticky Strip and them ruffled the dyed Taffeta Ribbon on top.

 

I baby duck is made from the 1 3/4 Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch for the head and Bird Punch for the wing, beak and head feather.  The eyes were made from the Crop A Dile in black and white.  I stamped Baby, Welcome to the Word from Stampin' Up!'s A Word from You stamp set and punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  It is layered on the Wide Oval punched from Daffodil Delight.  I added a trio of little pearls under the greeting.

 

I think it turned out, OH SO CUTE!  lol!

 

Don't forget about my RIBBON and DESIGNER PAPER SHARES

going on NOW!  Next round order will be placed on July 9th.

Connie,
This card is too cute. I have a baby shower to attend when I get back from convention and this will be great. Thinking of using the Takes the cake dsp to make it.
