Whiff of Joy Blog Hop DT Challenge

Ummed & aahed whether to have a go at this, as the WOJ DT standard is so high, but thought why not & I certainly had fun trying!! It's based on the fab sketch provided by Katharina herself, & took me outside of my comfort zone. Usually I stick to a square card, but this made me think outside the box so to speak & I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I love this duck, she strikes me as a bit of a lush! I wonder what the appeal could be, LOL! I coloured her with my DIs, but used glaze on the glass & bottle & glitter pens on the water, but these do not show up so well in the photo. I need to get me some glimmer mist, as those flowers would have looked fab with a little extra sparkle. The DPs are Crate Paper. Nearly missed the deadline though as I had internet connection problems & it took me ages to get my post on.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
