Clearly Inspired ...... PSYCHO-duck-lic..... :)

I love the vibrant colors and fun style of the 70s (minus the bell bottoms!!) ... tie dye, peace signs, and psychedelic fun. The Clearly Inspired Challenge for today calls for us to use patterned paper. How fun is that? And when I saw the new digital paper pack by Trudy Sjolander - True-ly Colorful Collection - I knew I had to use it on my project! How cool are those papers?! Love 'em!

So, I had my tie dye background ..... where do I go from there???

Well ..... I added a duck - a blue one .... and some smileys .....

This is what I came up with. I call it psychoducklic. :) We couldn't have the duck be a nice normal yellow or white, could we??? Of course not. I made him blue and his bill green, added some glassy glaze to his bill and feet. Stamped some peace signs on the background with fog ink and added some embellies. What do you think??? I totally love the vibrant colors on this card. That paper is so perfect. :)
