Buddy & Ducky

Happy Friday everyone!  Today I am sharing another NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) card combined with tic tac toe, balloons, color and stitch challenges.


On a piece of white cardstock slightly larger than A2 size, I randomly sponged on some Broken China distress inks for the sky.  I cut a couple of NBUS stitched clouds from white cardstock, cut one in half, and adhered them to the sponged background.  Then I die cut that background piece with an A2 size stitched rectangle die.  To create the window, I die cut with the largest size Inside & Out Stitch Rounded Rectangle.


My other NBUS item is the Buddy and Duck stamp set from Penny Black.  I wanted to have these two critters chatting away as they float off to the upper right corner. I stamped Buddy and Duck with black Memento ink, colored with Copics and fussy cut them out.  For some dimension, I added glossy accents to the balloons.


Now to put my card together, I added foam adhesive to the frame and the critters. I adhered the frame to a top folding white card base, inlaid the rounded rectangle piece, and then added Buddy and Duck. I stamped the sentiment in blue on a white stitched curve banner and mounted it with foam adhesive as well.  To finish and complete the top row across of the tic tac toe challenge, I added a few sequins.



I am playing in the following challenges:

CAS on Sunday – Challenge #90 Balloons
Color Throwdown – Challenge #408
