Basic Black, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Have you ever had to come up with a card with a theme that you don't have any stamps or backgrounds for? Yup! My son was invited to a Duck Dynasty birthday party. Oiy! Don't have any camo or realistic duck stamps. Punt! I made my own camo background with the frosting portion of the Cupcake Punch. Yay! The duck was masked before stamping because the original stamp is a duck pull toy. If you cover the area that you don't want on your image with tape, ink, then pull the tape off, you will only have the portion of the image that you want when you stamp. Another way, of course, is to use a marker. Since I only wanted the duck to be one color, it was easier to mask. I sponged a bit of Soft Sky around the duck and used my Old Olive marker to ground the duck. I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso on Summer Starfruit and cut it out with the matching framelit from the Word Bubbles Framelits. (Have I mentioned yet how much I love these framelits?! They are da bomb!) The duck was cut out with the Apothecary Framelits. The background dots is a free embossing folder with any $50 purchase through the end of this month. Yay for fun cards!
