A duck for Christmas

The thing with commissioned cards is that you can be asked to make absolutely anything! This card was for one of the children in Joseph's music class to give to his grandparents. The initial request was for a little boy and a duck in traditional Christmas colours. When this proved to be a little beyond possible the mum said anything cute would be fine! At the NEC I picked up this cute stamp (the duck has a duckling on its head!) from Stamposaurus and felt it was one I would be able to use again so it was worth paying out for! He is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Summer Sun Promarker from the Summer 2012 Limited Edition set, and Mustard Promarker. His hat is red card from Papermania with everyday cotton wool stuck on it!!!!

The duck is sitting on an image which was a free card blank with some Forever Friends chipboard shapes either last Christmas or the one before, mounted on Dovecraft / Trimcraft Christmas paper with ribbon from Wilkinson's.

Awww, now I feel bad that the duck I associate with Christmas is the one that goes in my tummy! Well done on executing a difficult commission. Happy Hopping.
