Sparkles Monthly Challenge - Spring is in the Air

The Sparkles Monthly Challenge theme chosen by DT member Helen is Spring is in the Air.

For my card I used a retired Stampin Up image from the Art of Life stamp set.  I used watercolor markers direct to stamp, spritzed it with water and stamped onto watercolor paper with first, second, and third generation stamping.  To embellish I created a multi loop gingham bow.

We hope you'll share your spring is in the air cards/projects with us this month at the Sparkles Monthly Challenge found HERE.

The theme is Fantasy & Stories; we hope you'll share your cards/projects with us this week at The Outlawz PAM Challenge.

Make it Masculine

I'm on the Cheapo Dies Blog today sharing a fun masculine card using the exclusive Cheapo Dies Duck with you today.

I used a woodgrain texture cardstock to die cut the duck and used Copic makers to color the beak and cattails.  The "eye" is a dot from a handheld circle punch.

The background for the duck was created using the sunburst technique of cutting strips of patterned paper into wedges and arranging on a piece of cardstock.

Here's a closeup of the duck

The die I used for my card:
