Lucky Ducky

Have you ever sat down to stamp and make a card...or other projects...but just can't figure out where to start?  Well...lucky ducky for us....there's a bazillion challenges out there to get things going.

For example...

I went to and found a great layout from the Wednesday Card Sketches Challenge I used Card Sketch 390.  Then...I decided to use a stamp set from Our Craft Lounge callled The Pond. Since I picked an OCL set...I went to their blog to see what fun and exciting stuff was going on. That's when I saw a Color Challenge from June 15th that was perfect for my design.

In the closeup pic you can see how I made the ducky fluffy with Sugar Sparkly Fluff and Clear Glaze Pen to make the water, drops and beak shinny.  I also colored Clear Spica Glitter Pen on the water before the glaze for a little more sparkle.

Turned out great

I love a good challenge!
