Masculine Mallards Card

Hello and happy Tuesday! This week at Cardz 4 Guyz I have the pleasure of being the hostess and I chose the theme Birds for our challenge. I love feeding our backyard birds and recently we woke up to a pair of Mallards in our yard. We have received a lot of rain and our yard backs up to a creek but we were surprised to see them right up by the house. This Masculine Mallards Card was inspired by my backyard encounter. I can't wait to see what bird inspires your creation!

To create my card I used a digital image I recently won from Pattie's Creations Challenge called Mallards. Pattie Gomez is the artist and she has an Etsy shop where she sells her images. I colored the image with my Copic markers and quickly decided that this beauty needed to be a framed piece of art. I used a piece of hardwood patterned paper to make the frame and then adhered over the image with dimensionals. The rest is pretty simple and the finished card size is 5.25" square.

Here is another picture of Mr. Tazzy helping me craft. It never fails, I start to take pictures and he wants to help. The second picture is Mr. Dickens and he likes to nap by the window while I make cards. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
