Welcome!

Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Mallard and Mill

I made this card at a 3 day stamping retreat in October, hosted by Peddler's Den.  It was held in Yorkville, IL, and the focus was on Stampscapes (although you were free to create with anything you'd like!).

I stamped the mallard duck in the foreground, masked it, and then added the mill, rocks and trees in the background,  The color is a combination of Spectrum Noir markers and stippling with Marvy inks.  I highlighted the white on the duck with a white gel pen.  The final touch was autumn Flowersoft on the trees and reflections in the water.

I did a simple black mat and mounted it on to a folded 5.5 inch tan card base.

This card is destined for my friend Trena's birthday.  She is a fellow Stampscapes fan and I figured she would appreciate it.
