Pack Light

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a Saturated Canary digi. 



I colored this image ages ago but never got around to making a card with her.  Poor little cutie has been sitting in my UFO (unfinished objects) pile for a long time.  I colored the image with copics and colored pencils.  The image is quite large so I left it as the focal point and only added a few enamel dots.  I love plaid dp and the one I used here is from My Favorite Things.

Sending Warm Hugs

Good morning!  I'm sharing a card I made awhile back using some SugarPea Designs products.


This adorable duck is from the Quackers clear stamp set.  I used the SugarCuts - Chatterbox Journal Card die to cut a panel of watercolor paper and then I used distress inks to create a little puddle for the duck.  I colored the duck with copics and used the SugarCuts - Whatever The Weather to diecut the sun.  The little happy face on the sun is from the Whatever The Weather clear stamp set, as is the sentiment.  The dp is from the Whatever The Weather Patterned Paper Collection.  I added some Glossy Accents to the duck's beak and feet, and finished my card with a few sequins. 

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
