Hello Duckie

My favourite colours are pink, purple and blue but choosing between them is sometimes difficult (and often depends on my mood!).  I've always loved pink though; it's so soft and feminine.  The new pink or blue challenge at As You Like It Challenge had to be pink for my choice. (just don't ask me the same question again tomorrow if you want the same answer!)






Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Duck: Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge
  • Present: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Spots: Broken China, Stormy Sky, Wilted Violet, Abandoned Coral

Pop Up Critters

It's a picture heavy post today because I've made a twist and pop card with each panel featuring a different critter.  I've also tried some 'ombre' inking using distress inks and a sponge dauber to create the sky and ground.

It is my first card using this fold and it took a while to make, but I was pleased with the finished result.  

My Japanese friend often sends me pop-up or 3D cards so I specifically wanted to make one for her birthday and chose this style to try.

This is an image of the front of the card:




This is the inside once it's 'popped' open:



Next I have a few close ups of each of the 4 inside panels:






And finally how they lined up inside the card:

Have a Tail Wagging Good Time

For my mid-week card this week, I'm in puppy mode with this tail wagging cutie from MFT.  I've added a little bit of background for him in colours to match the papers, but I've kept the whole design quite plain and masculine (apart from the pearls!)





Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Collar: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans
