More Simplicity Challenge Cards.....

I am considering treatment....I think I am obsessed with Simplicity's challenges.

I had an idea to build a One Layer Scene and repeat a component of it.  I tried this technique from this wonderful artist, Michelle Zindorf.  I love her stuff and she is so brilliant and generous to share with us all the tutorials on how to do it.  However, I continue to ruin sheet after sheet of paper trying to imitate her skill.  I keep checking on her site to see if she has scheduled classes in Ontario - I would travel anywhere to take her class!
I used black pigment ink and embossed it with clear powder.  The bullrush stamp is from Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  It really wasn't that hard and I really like the look of it.  I think I need to make more of these in different colours (daylight, dusk, dawn) with the four other sayings in the set.
Having to repeat the pattern got me to thinking about these adorable Rosie Roadhouse ducks.  Each of them have names and these ones are Riley and Richard.

I used Marvy markers in two shades of yellow to colour them (I have copics but wanted to try the same thing wtih marvys and they worked pretty well).  The sentiment is from a set I bought at a garage sale and didn't have the original packaging...sorry!)  Tried to match the ducks bills with the ribbon.  I thought the card was....well just this side of tastefully "cheeky".

Then I used Rupert and Mabel and added several Richards in this card; making them appear as if they were gossiping about him.
The sentiment is from My Favourite Things called Twisted Sentiments.  There are some pretty cheeky sentiments in that set so be warned.  I have all the sets :)).
