Easter Ducks

Such a cute site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC642)!After a lot of browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I liked the sweet little duck & all the Easter eggs & I needed an Easter card so it was perfect.

For my Easter card today, the baby ducks were stamped, colored & die cut, and I had to do a little out of the box on the grass along the way. The large green bg started out white but I sponged Distress & Distress oxide inks onto it, splattered it & also stamped the Splatter Bg on it in blues, greens & finally white. The white splatter was heat embossed w/ white powder & I left an area at the bottom w/o too much on it so I could add the greeting. I was going for that speckled egg look on the bg. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Very cute. I’ve yet to do out of the box technique, can you believe it? It looks great. Your splattered bg looks wonderful and so unique doing it in several colours.
