Crafty Individuals Challenge - Animal World

This month's theme on the Crafty Individuals' blog challenge is Animal World. I could have entered all the bunny items I have made this past month but I decided to make something else. This Crafty Individuals stamp is one I bought at the end of last year but I haven't had a chance to use it until now.
I stamped it in archival sepia and then coloured it in with coloursoft pencils. I applied glossy accents to the catkins (are they catkins?) and mounted one of the ducks on foam pads for dimension.

 A stencil and spiced marmalade DI was used for the background of the card blank. I took a strip of spare card and smeared yellow, blue and green paint across it with my finger. This was secured with some tiny brads.

I am also entering this into Darnell's NBUS (never before used schtuff) challenge.


  1. this is wonderful - love it to pieces - big hugs Rachel x

  2. Pretty card with great coloring!

  3. A very beautiful card with this stamp that I love!
    Thanks for joining in the CI Challenge this month.

  4. Beautifully coloured ducks on a pretty card! Thanks for joining in the CI Animal Challenge. Jean x

  5. You've done a great job on enhancing the stamped image with colour, glossy accent and popping up one of the ducks. The subdued background doesn't take other but quietly complements the stamping. I like it! And I have bunny fatigue too!

  6. This is gorgeous! Love your colouring and the two contrasting backgrounds look fab! xxx

  7. Rukhshana, this is such a fantastic design and a great guy card! I love that you have added gloss to your catkins - we used to call them cattails as kids. Popping up one duck is a great idea, too! I love all the elements!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!! It's great to see you again! Hugs, Darnell

  8. That's a beautiful piece of art.

  9. Oh Rukshana, your card is superb, I love the little details like the Glossy accents you have put, and the originality of your design with the tag. Great ducks like Sid said above! Merci beaucoup de ta participation à ce challenge CI! :) Bises, Coco


I read and value all your comments.
