I've gone Quackers

Oh I fell in love with this cute high hopes stamp 'Dunno duck' so cute shrugging his shoulders like many a teenager when asked a question that needs thinking about.

I altered another thing, this was a celebrations platic box that at the moment is filled with bits and bobs i haven't put back where they should be, odd buttons and toppers I've made etc.

i'm not a red person and definitely don't do red and green together but had started sicking down the green paper before I realised how much red would be left showing. Never mind I think you just focus on the ducks anyway. I coloured them with promarker pale blue for the shading and sakura glaze pens for the beaks and feet. The white I used a border punch to add some intrest and finished with some thin emerald ribbon.

The top again in green and white paper, the edge is done with scissors and more ducks. Don't they just make you smile?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-

for fun challenges-anything with ribbon or lace
high hopes-anything but a card
just scraps-fussy cutting
lets ink it up-anything but use yellow
craft your days away-wings
