Round two of the 'Little yellow duck'

Well - I took some time to play with my duck stamp today - keeping in mind Chrissie's (at 'Less is More' ) recomendation that I try him straight onto a card without the extra colours.

After this posting I will have to head back & clean up all the card blanks I attempted before finally deciding that this was as good as I was going to get it to look.

So here he is again - same duck - different venue
I am pretty happy with him in his more minimalist setting, and hopefully this will be good practice for next week's one layer card. 

I was surprised at how hard it was to draw the lines - I practiced lots. There are some little shudders in the top left - but I've decided they add credibility to the hand drawn look.

The dark shadow on the top right would not leave no matter what camera angle I used. So I think it is an indication of the horrible weather we are having in Wellington today. 
Still it's a nice day to be at home making cards.

  2. This card is stunning. I love the hand drawn border it sets the whole card off to a tee! The card really makes me smile.

  3. Dianne this is FAB! I love the white space and I love the drawn borders, so stylish
