Duck Shit

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello Gail here today.  The new challenge here at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity is Tweet This!!   We want to see birds on your projects.   Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda have lots and lots of amazing bird themed stamps and the team will be showcasing these the next couple of weeks.  Carmen's Veranda's Duck insisted on making another outing!!
He's just so adorable!!  Here he is showing his rebellious side!  

I stamped Lost Coast Designs Grunge Border 3" using Wilted Violet distress ink on grey card and cut it with Sizzix Deckle Edge die.  This gave a nice subtle look, but you can still see the details.  
I stamped Duck on yellow card using Potting Soil archival and fussy cut and adjusted his wings so he looks a bit more animated.  I stamped the Carmen's Veranda Giveashitometer sentiment and embossed with black ink.  Actually, knowing ducks, I am not sure this sentiment is quite correct, cos ducks shit a lot!!  But there you go!!  Artistic license.  Oh, and despite my usually dislike of punctuation on sentiments I actually felt this one needed a few more full stops, so I used an embossing pen and some more powder to make it a bit more open ended.  I mounted it on a yellow card base that I stamped with Carmen's Veranda Dice Background and the brown archival ink.
Thanks for dropping by.  Link up your Birdie makes for a chance to win Lost Coast dollars and don't forget to drop back often to see more amazing inspiration from the team.
