Whimsy - a card for the Paperartsy challenge

I cannot begin to think how long it's been since I made an entry for a Paperartsy challenge - but the latest theme is "Whimsy" and I just love Elena's Zinski range - when I was at Stamperama last month I just fell in love with this cute little duck.

When I saw the flower by JoFY it shouted "umbrella" (or parasol) to me... so I combined them in a card.

I coloured the images with Pitt Artist pens (over clear gesso on the flower, so I could smudge the pens a little to blend the colours) and added a little shading with a grey pen for the duck to stand on.

As I love this Helen. I need that flower and the little Charlie! You are right, it makes the perfect parasol.

Really lovely card Helen. We're back home now so will be trying to catch up with what everyone has been up to that is ... once I get everything in order and put away. Maisie and Stan are still in the kennels and I suspect they will need a good bath when they get back. Hope your day is good. Sending hugs, Angela xXx
