Stuck Duck & Avery Elle Challenge

January 23, 2016 at 1:25 pm 10 comments

 Hi! How are you? 
Today I’m showing you how to create a fun scene just using a set of dies and linking in some stamped images that tell a story!

Let me introduce you to ‘stuck duck’ 

 The characters are

from the Story book set
The die set is another Avery Elle set ‘Snow Caps Ellements’ 

 The great thing about the Storybook set is that you can create your own breeds of animals. I wanted to create some mallards as the scene’s main characters. 

One has got stuck in the ice (hence the ‘stuck duck’).

Now obviously his friend had raised the alarm and sent for Air Sea Rescue who ingeniously thought of commandeering the local cable car and simply lowered the rope down whilst ‘stuck duck’ wound it around himself.

The rescuing rabbit simply tucked the rope under his paw, and let the motion of the cable cars winch the shivering duck to safety.


I’ve added in some acetate over the top for a super quick way of adding falling snow and therefore this card fits perfectly in with the current challenge for the current ‘Winter’ 

Avery Elle i❤️u Challenge  

I’ve coloured with mostly Prismacolor pencils which I’m really starting to enjoy using. Do join in too- you have until Jan 26th!

The sentiment set is from ‘Weather It’ 

 Do check out these sets at Seven Hills Crafts– there’s a tonne more to see too! 

See you soon!

    Do you write books, too. You should! I can see the ad for it now, “From the amazing pen of Keren Baker…a new tale of tragedy and heroism”. I’d read it in a hot second. It takes a fantastic imagination to come up with cards like these and the meticulous skills to make them work. There’s no other word for it but, Genius. And that’s you, my friend.
