Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration day, but it's not a Christmas card this time. This time of the year is really busy time for my family we have 5 birthdays before Christmas and 1 right after. Normally my mother has one big party for everyone and that way she's not having party after party. I decided to get my Dad's Birthday card whose birthday is in a couple of weeks done now. I saw this stamp set back in September at a craft show here in Edmonton and knew this was for him. Every fall my Dad goes hunting for either geese or ducks with all of his hunting gear in a little trailer. Most of the time he gets rid of the ducks & geese because no one eats them.
Anyways here is my card, I started off using bronze metallic paper for the base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used S.E. I. paper collection called 'Homestead' for the rest. I used the stamp set called 'Oh Duck' by Sheena Douglass and you can find it here:
I stamp the duck using Black Memento ink which Laura carries in the store and created a mask on copy paper which I cut out. I then masked out the bird and I used my Copic airbrushing system to create the background. I then colored the duck using my Prismacolor pencils. I stamped 'Happy Birthday' using Whimsy Stamps set called 'Celebration Mini Tickets' using black pigment ink and embossed using blue and green embossing powder by Clearsnap.

I cut out the paper called 'Whispering Willows' paper to create weeds around the pond.
Just about everything can be found at Laura's store and OMG you should see the great stuff she has coming in the next few weeks! Please check out the store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/
