Easter Ducks

A sweet little Easter card with adorable little spring ducks. Mama duck in her Easter bonnet is pulling her duckling in a cart of Easter eggs.It would be easy to swap out this greeting for Mother’s Day.

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS895), so a big congrats to Sioban! She has a fabulous gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the ducks, cart & circle element, but I used different dies, turned it vertical & added a designer paper background.

The ducks & flowers were cut out of white & colored w/ Copics. The parts of the cart were cut using a few shades of brown & I did cut the length of the cart & moved the wheel in toward cart for a better fit. The big cracked egg that the duckling is sitting in is actually the artist palette. The shape was perfect for a large egg & I cut the tops in a zigzag w/ a pair scissors. The inset piece of the palette was also a perfect egg shape, so I colored 3 of them & stuck then in the cart w/ some sprigs of grass. The circle background behind the ducks was stamped w/ the faux watercolor images & ink that I spritzed w/ water before stamping, for a softer look.

I always look through my dies & images to see what I can use when I don’t have exact thing I want, so don’t be afraid to rearrange or alter your stamped images or dies to get the look you want.
Here are the Copics I used on my die cuts:
