Swimming Mallard

Mondays and Fridays I am off during the day. Today I FINALLY had some time to be in my stamp room...and what fun I had!! This card is for a dual challenge - OWH Sunday Sketch and Dare U 2 Digi Stamp, one for the boys. I used Clear Dollar Stamps' Swimming Mallard digi image, coloring it in with my copic markers. I've had this sampling of DSP for quite some time now, so why not use it! Cardstock colors include Rich razzleberry, Tempting turquoise, White and Green galore. I had to sponge around the edges of the duck and sentiment with a little Creamy caramel to tone down the harsh white. I added a little bling with the rhinestones, but not too much since it is meant for "one of the boys!"

Linda, this is such a pretty card, even though it's a "man card". I love everything about it! Great coloring, too!
