Duck About Town and a Winner

Hello.  Welcome.  I am a member of the Things To Alter mixed media group on fb and we had an ATC swap.   This is the one I sent to Katie, and since it's arrived I thought I'd share it here.  I borrowed Katie's photo cos it was better than mine LOL.  


I cut my base from some patterned card (Little Yellow Bicycle maybe?) added a piece of lace and a piece of MME stripey patterned card.  I stamped Whimsy Stamps Into The Farm on to kraft card and embossed.  I cut out the little adverts I wanted to use and added some colour.  I stamped Crafty Individuals Jolly Duck on to a piece of kraft paper that was printed with silver stars.  I added some colour to the duck.  I love that the little stars resisted the colour and they seem to be in such perfect places.  I edged with black soot distress ink.  

Thanks to everyone who played my little game and for all the lovely comments last month. I put them all together, threw them up in the air and the last one standing was.....


Congrats Dora.  Drop me a message craftynomad at gmail dot com and I'll get the goodies winging their way to you.  Hugz

Thanks for dropping by.  If you like my duck leave me a quack.  Hugz
