Vets, fish and ducks

Hehehe - I managed to make the title all about animals!

The weather has been pretty wet here at the start of the week, although it is brightening up now, but it does mean I have been struggling to get down on the allotment. However it didn't stop me taking the poor kitty to the vets for her T4 blood test. She is not very happy with me now lol.

I have now put my fish tank down for a little while to try and get the height chart completed. It is currently at 108 hours:

I will post regular updates on the height chart :)

Now onto my recent creation - a weather themed, one-layer card:
I took a yellow card blank from the Works and stamped Jemima Puddleduck, from Crafter's Companion onto the front. Jemima was coloured with Tequila Sunrise (beak and feet), Summer Sun (bonnet), Tawy Owl and Grey Squirrel (feathers) and March Hare and Budding Rose (shawl). This is obviously a duller colour scheme than Jemima is used to, but it brings a subtle element to the card. I masked off areas of the card and then used a snowflake from a free Popcorn Bear stamp set, and Enamel embossing powder onto the unmasked strip. Using Dovecraft Hot Pink ink and baby wipes I covered the panel in the ink, creating a marble-like effect - wiping the ink from the snowflakes. I also finished the circle around Jemima with this baby wipe. The snowflakes have not come out as well as I had hoped and I am not sure if a paler pink would have looked better for the strip?

Anyway this card was made with the following challenges in mind:

OLS #21 whatever the weather
sketchy colours #256 Pink, Yellow and Brown
cute card thursday 394 One Layer
suzy bee 100 Embossing
