OLC Blog Hop with an Announcement

Here I am again with another Our Craft Lounge blog hop. BUT this time it’s a special hop and I’m so excited to be in it. Because this hop is also an Announcement Hop.

Our Craft Lounge is announcing their Design Team and I’m honored to be a part of the team! I was so thrilled when Cami asked if I’d like to join the team.

I just had to play with Ducky Days as I was sick this weekend and thought that he might cheer me up some. I combined him with the Featured Stamper on SCS. You can find the card I cased here.

I colored him with prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Used a cloud stencil for the sky and landed him in a field of flowers. Of course the silly duck had to step in a puddle!

All the layers are faux just like the cased card. I used an artist pen to outline the edges giving it a look of layered. The flower stamp from the set was stamped on the faux colored layers which were sponged on.
