Quacky Birthday

I made this birthday card for a young friend who loves ducks.  I coloured this cute little duck image, which was a Friday freebie from Bugaboo Digi Stamps at one time, with my watercolour markers, rounded the corners, and mounted on a blue scrap.  I made the sentiment, which says, "Have a Quacky Birthday," in Microsoft Word, coloured it with a yellow pencil, circle punched, and doodled a border around the circle.  I stamped the sun in black on a yellow scrap and fussy-cut.  I finished it off with three punched hearts and a whale charm.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamp:  Sun (Studio G)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections and unknown scraps from my stash
  • Watercolour markers:  Tombow
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Black marker:  Staedtler
  • Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Happy Birthday
  • Corner Rounder:  Creative Memories
  • Accents:  Whale charm, heart punch, thread (dollar store)
