For today's Under-Appreciated Holiday, we'll celebrate National Dance Like A Chicken Day, which is observed every year on May 14th. I do not have a lot of chicken stamps, but I do have a LOT of duck stamps, so that's what I decided to use. After all, this is an inspiration challenge, right? Right! To validate my decision to use ducks instead of chickens (as if I need to validate anything I do on my own blog with my own made-up challenge), I just read this little tidbit on the link above:
"We did uncover the origin of the Chicken Dance song. It was originally titled "Der Ententanz" (The Duck Dance). "
It's Kismet, I tell you!
So here you go - my dancing ducks card. All images are by Rosie's Roadshow. The papers are from my Basic Grey Mellow 6x6 pack.
I actually cut out the white oval first, then arranged all the ducks so they fit onto the oval. To give the ducks a little dimension, I stamped them onto the oval and also onto scraps. I outlined each of the stamped duck images with my C-1 Copic, then I cut out the scrap bodies and glued them onto the stamped bodies. I drew those little floating notes with my Sahara Sand marker.
That's it! Now go and dance like a chicken! I dare you! :-)
I love your duck card! Great papers, great stamp great sentiment :)ReplyDelete
Not only do I NOT have a chicken stamp, I don't have a duck stamp either! Clearly I am in serious need of more stamps...LOL! I do, however, have lots of birdie stamps and will try to make something with one of those.ReplyDelete
There really are some very odd holidays out there...
