Streamside Studios | A Ducky Day

May 1, 2024

Hello friends! I have a fun one-layer card to share with you today featuring the new A Ducky Day clear stamps set from Streamside Studios. If you’ve never checked out their website, I highly encourage you to do so!

A Ducky Day Clear Stamps Set

I started with a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. In order to give the appearance of some of my images being behind the other (without seeing all of the stamp lines), I stamped my images in order of front to back, masking each image as I went. For my masking, I used some Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Sheets and fussy cut my images in order to place them on top of my stamped image on my card front before stamping another image “on top” of it.

Once I was done stamping and while my images were still masked, I lightly blended a portion of my card background with some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. To give my background some more interest, I added a few spatters of diluted Winsor & Newton Permanent White Gouache with a small round paint brush.

Once everything was dry (which only takes a minute or two), I removed my masking pieces, trimmed my piece down to 3.75″ x 5″ and then colored everything with Copic Markers.

  • Ducks: 0, C00, C1, C3, C4
