"Fuzzy Ducky"~Another One of My Illustrations

Hope you are all enjoying the last day of the weekend!
I get to show you another stamp that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps. It is my "Fuzzy Ducky".
Don't you think she's sweet?
She is available as of today @ Clear Dollar Stamps for just $2.49!!!!  That's right....$2.49!!!!!
Lori has also done up several different card kits with her to help you get some cute "Fuzzy Ducky" cards done up quick.

I punched the flowers then colored them with a Tombo marker to get the exact color I wanted. I then curled the petals a little to add shape then made a faux brad out of the same designer paper that I used on the card. The leaves are also punched (from a pointed flower punch, then cut apart) and colored with a Tombow.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Creatalicious ~ Show Some 3D
The frame of the main image is popped, I have dimensional flowers, pearls, and ribbon.
Corrosive ~ All About Babies
This would make a wonderful card for a new baby
Creative Inspirations ~ Anything Goes
Paper Play ~ Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz ~ Something With A Tail
(Birds have tail feathers so that must mean they have tails....right?)
I used the polk-a-dot pattered paper.
Paper Sundaes ~ Stitching
Got it!

Card Recipe:
CS/PAPERS: Basic Grey's Sugar Rush, White card base
INK: Staz-On
MARKERS: Tombows
ACCENTS/TOOLS: Wizard and round and scalloped round Nestabilities, sewing machine and green thread, pink half pearls, flower, leaf, and small circle punch to make flowers, Offray ribbon in orange, Diamond Glaze
COLORING: Tombows and water
TECHNIQUES: stamping, watercoloring, embossing, sewing,
SPECIAL NOTES: I made the flowers by punching the shapes out of white cardstock, col
oring with Tombows, shaping with an embossing tool then adding a faux brad that I also made to match the designer paper.

I would so love to hear what you think about my newest illustration, my card, or both!  ;)
True :D
