Nice weather for ducks!

At Craft Your Passion this week we you want to Show Lots of Texture.We have the fab The Cutting Cafe and Robin’s Nest as our sponsors too!Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I’ve used some images and words from the Rain Rain Go Away Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe.There are so many super images and sentiments in this bundle that I just had to make more than one card!I’ve used ProMarkers to colour with glaze added all over the boots and just on the duck’s beak and water.I think I went a b it heavy handed with it on the boots and it seemed to leach some of the colour of the lighter red and create a divide in the shading 😦 The shades of red were beautifully blended as in the flowers on the duck card originally.Never mind it’s taught me lesson to go easier next time!To create lots of texture I’ve used these fab card blanks I picked up from my local craft warehouse,some corrugated card from my stash,hessian and some of the beautiful new Papermania Capsule Collection papers.I’ve torn some of the edges for added texture too!
