Duckie & Hedgies Xmas

I have been making Xmas cards this week, and here's another one!  This time I stamped with Penny Black's Duckie & Hedgies, which I embossed in gold and coloured with watercolour markers.  I outlined the square with gold marker and  mounted on a green panel and then a rust panel.  These are odd Xmas colours, I know, but it seemed to match the DP that I chose for the bottom portion of the card.  I  stamped my own background for the top portion of the card using a snowflake background stamp.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in black and then finished it off with a bow.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Duckie & Hedgies (Penny Black #2967J), sentiment (All Night Media), snowflakes (unmarked but I think it's Magenta)
  • Ink:  Versamark  watermark, Versafine Onyx Black (both Tsukineko)
  • Embossing Powder:  The Artful Stamper
  • Gold Marker:  Pilot
  • Watercolour Markers:  Tombow
  • Watercolour Paper:  Canson
  • Cardstock:  green (Walmart), rust (unknown scraps from my stash)
  • DP:  Dollarama
  • Ribbon:  Dollarama
