Birthday Quackers

I have been away from my craft room and blogging for a while now because at the end of May my mum died.

 It was my mum that started me off on my crafting journey a few years ago as she was an avid card maker.  Apart from everything else that I thank my amazing mum for, I thank her for giving me a love of all things crafty that keeps me happy for hours, sane and through which I have got to know some amazingly talented people.

I haven't even felt the urge to go in my craft room for quite a while but today I did and here is the card I made with a free digital stamp I downloaded from Just Ink Lined Stamps called Quackers. I only discovered them recently and they have got some brilliant digital stamps in their shop and lots of free ones of which this is one.

I printed the stamp twice and coloured the ducks with my Copics.  I coloured another set of feet and fussy cut them out so that it would give these little ducks a bit of dimension.

I die cut the word Happy and layered some Glossy Accents on top. 
I cut a window out of some card, behind which I stuck my ducks and added their feet over the top.

I love how this one turned out and I even experimented using natural light to take my photos as it is so much easier than faffing about with lights etc.  It was a bright day so there was a fair bit of light coming through the windows today rather than the gloomy haze that there has been lately!!
