Mallard Duck and Camo

Good Morning!

Today’s card was inspired by this weeks #tgifc95 Inspiration Challenge, Birds of a feather.

 I have to say this card was most certainly inspired by my husband, in fact I bought this stamp set because he loved it so much!

   The gorgeous mallard drake comes from the wilderness awaits stamp set (139365) I stamped him in basic black archival ink (140931) and coloured him using my watercolour pencils (141709) I used my layered circles framelits (141705) and partial die cut around him.

The backing card is soft suede (119982) the camo look is made using water colour paper (122959) dampened slightly with some plain water in a stampin’ spritzer (126185) I then scrunched it up and got it nice and crinkled.  Then I used my F block (118483) to stamp some colour on, spritz it nice and wet and then pat the paper on, I worked through 3 different colours, early espresso (126974) tip top taupe (138325) old olive (126953).  Finally I finished the card with some burlap ribbon (141487).
