While I was blog browsing the other day I went on Jodys blog and saw a tutorial she had on watercoloring w/alcohol instead of water. In her tutorial she used reinkers. I dont have all the reinkers so I decided to try my SU markers. I colored this duck from High hopes three times and punched them out in different places to make it look like the duck was flipping. I loved the sentiments in the SU many happy returns. I saw this head over heels and knew it was perfect for the HH duck. I made a card awhile back for a friend of mine using this duck and a computer generated head over heels sentiment so I was excited to actually have a stamp w/the sentiment now.
I do have a few copic markers that I have been practicing with and one of them I have is the cool gray for shadow and outlines. I used it on the duck for some shading. I used my pumpkin pie marker for the beak (bill?) and feet. I stamped the senitment three times on the sq and pierced in b/w the sentiments. I also faux stitched on the 3 image panels. The layout is from Taylors blog tecc9. I think the card turned out pretty cute!
