Ducky Dance for FM206!

It's Friday... Yay!!! Time for a new challenge at the Friday Mashup.. This week our hostess is Lisa and she has a fun Springtime challenge for us Mash'ing up Umbrellas & Polka Dots. I don't know about you but I LOVE Polka Dots on anything!

I'm using the adorable Ducky Dance Digi image from Tiddly inks.. This is my absolute favorite Tiddly Inks image! 

I created my own background with Copics & some Distress Ink and I added Polka Dots with a Nail art dotting tool and some Copic Opaque white. And you know I had to add some Clear Wink of Stella as well!! 

I printed the image out onto some Neenah Solar White card stock and I let it dry overnight.. Then I colored Wryn and the Ducks in with Copics and trimmed the panel to size. I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. 

Using some Weathered Wood Distress ink I created a soft background and brought it into the image about 3/4 of the way and then I used Copics C-0, C-1 & 0 to outline the image and fade it into the background for a stormy sky look. I added the polka dots and set the piece aside to dry. 

I created a Crushed Curry card base and then I added some pieces of the Hello Sunshine Lawn Fawn Pattern paper following the sketch and I adhered the image panel with some dimensionals. I left off a sentiment and decided I could just add one on the inside when it was time to use the card. This would be great for Get Well or just a Hello card. I still had some of the Studio Calico enamel dots on my desk so I added a few of those in different sizes. 

Be sure to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other Deisgn Team members created with this fun challenge.. Tara used the same image I did and it's super cute! 

I'm entering this into the Spring Showers challenge at MarkerPop .. and Tiddly Inks is having a Design Team call until April 28th. So if you are a fan like me, grab your favorite image and enter your creation! 

Thanks for stopping by today.... Have a great weekend!
