I Wuv You

I Wuv You - Sew Many Challenges started back up today and we are all so excited to get back into crafting.

This little Duncan image is one of the new releases for the 2012 Valentine season. Duncan is a favorite critter of many of our loyal fans and I was thrilled to have him assigned to me. I first colored him in teal to match my DP, but to say that it didn't turn out well is an understatement. I much happier coloring in traditional baby duck colors. But I will be trying it again soon, as it is now a challenge for me. LOL

My DP is Magic Scraps Beach pack and kraft cardstock. I added a few tiny eyelets, embossed the corner pieces with CB houndtooth folder and distressed everything in Ranger's Blue Jean ink.

You can get my Duncan image here.
My second card is a critter that is new to Sew Many Cards. Introducing ... Eddie!
Eddie was added to the Sew Many Cards line to help with a EDS (Ehler's-Danlo Syndrome) quest for the cure for Stryder. Stryder's story is a touching one and you can read about his journey here. Purple is the color for his ribbon.
My DP is a scrap that has been in my scrap drawer for quite a while. I no longer remember which paper company made it. I used my new MS punches to make the frame and I used a piece of scrap ribbon.
Eddie is colored with Copic's and I added some Stickles to the dragonfly's wings and the ribbon on Eddie. I also used some Diamond Glaze on Eddie's eyes to make them shiny.
Eddie is free with any purchase at Sew Many Cards starting on the 16th and ending on the 19th. So get 2 cute images for the price of one and help with the quest for the cure!
