Marvelous Monday!

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. We had clouds and rain lol, but it was a good one anyways. So here we are at the start of another week and because it's Monday, it's Marvelous Monday over at Shelly's Images! And lucky me...I got to be a GDT this time :D This week we're showing our favorite images from Shelly's Images store.  I was so excited to be able to use the image that I did.

The image that I used was one that I won from her shop and I just love it. I adore doing scenic cards and this image fit the bill just right for a Father's Day card for my father in law.  Isn't it absolutely gorgeous! I just love that pretty little duck swimming in the water! If you'd like to get this image...or check out any of her other fabulous images, you can find them here. I paired it with some cattails from Firecracker Designs just to give it a more 3D effect.
I colored the image with Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms. Except for the head and part of the tail...on the those I used some metallic water colors to give the feathers a natural sheen like the real ducks. I added brown flocking to the cattails to make them more realistic also.

I got the sentiment from Splitcoast Stampers and the idea for the Octagon easel card from Crafty Anne and you can find the template here. I distressed around the sentiment using my Moss green ink from SU.
