Go Seahawks!!!

Hey everyone!
Happy Thursday!

We are starting a super fun new challenge today at Meljen's Designs - Team Spirit!!  I had so much fun comping up with my card for this challenge!  Of course, it came together with a few suggestions from my sweet husband :)

Since the super bowl is this weekend, figured I should do something for that.  And if you've been around here for awhile, you know that my heart belongs in Seattle.  So of course I made a card to show my support for our Seattle Seahawks!!...sorry to any Patriots fans reading this :)
I am so stinking happy with how this card turned out!  I had thought for sure that Meljen's Designs had a birdie all dressed up in football gear, but when I couldn't find it, I had to rethink my idea.  Shared a few things with Matthew and he suggested turning the Little Puddle Duck into a Seahawks fan with mud on it's boots :)  So I got my artist on and drew out a simple rug for the ducky to walk across on his way to the match.

He even got a little crazy in his support by dying his feathers to match the Seahawks colors (kinda...I know their colors are a bit darker...but this is what I went with).
He needed to have something in his beak, so I cut out some ovals to represent balloons and colored them up to match the image.  Then glued some string behind them and poked holes around his beak to feed the string through.  It looks so cool!!

I inked up a simple panel in some tumbled glass and broken china and then splattered some water on to get that really cool faded water drop look.  Dried it really quick and then spritzed it with some shimmer mist so the whole panel sparkles.

The sentiment is printed on vellum and white heat embossed.  I did a couple layer so it's nice and thick.  The frame of the card is creatively cut with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die.  I cut the bottom of the blue panel with one of the Borderline Trios from Mama Elephant.  Finished the whole project off with some coordinating sequins!  Love it so much!!  And I do hope that the Seahawks win!  Best of luck to both teams :)

So be sure to stop by Meljen's Designs to see the other DT's creations, and then join in the fun!!!

And one last time - GO HAWKS!!
