cute duckies

Are you still working on your pillow CASE? I know I am. As predicted, I didn't have time to stamp this evening, so I will have to create and post my cards tomorrow.

In the meantime, here is the last of the cards from my single layer class. On this card I first wheeled the duckies at the bottom of the card and colored the ducks and water bubbles in with stampin' write markers. Using the wheel guide as my mask, I went back with my bashful blue chalk from the stampin' pastels and, using a cotton-tipped applicator I colored in the water. I used the stampin' Pastels to do this because it was the best way to achieve a soft color on the white card stock base.

I then stamped the Let the Cute Begin sentiment and colored the letters and onesie with my stampin' write marker. Using the brown paper backing from the dies cut stamp and the wheel guide as a mask, I used a sponge dauber and cotton tipped applicator to add so saffron chalk to the top of the card. I needed to use the cotton tipped applicator to get close enough to the wheel guide so there would be a definite line between the blue water below and the yellow background above.

Of course, I then went and covered the line by wrapping a piece of pumpkin pie striped ribbon around the card front. So now you can't see the line between the faux layers, but I know it's there!
