Duck Soup

Ah.. Duck Soup.. one of the movies starring the Marx Brothers.  I always wanted to own a restaurant, and I would have named it Duck Soup. I think the real meaning is 'a bit of this, a bit of that'. Maybe in my next lifetime!

I love days when I can kick back and relax and get some coloring and card-making underway. Since my head is entirely underwater with a nasty cold, what better way to spend the day than inside doing what I enjoy.  That's what my entire weekend was like and I got a chance to create several new things, including this little treasure using the duck stamp from Whipper Snapper. It certainly can do dual-duty as a friendship or thank you card. I never seem to have enough of those on hand.

I started with a base of copic markers and added some Prisma pencil highlights for more tone and definition. If you haven't tried this yet, just don't make the mistake of going back over the penciled work with a copic marker...guaranteed you will ruin the tip of your marker.

I'm in a challenge mood, so conjured up these sites to enter my card today...
