MC Feb/16 - Frogs - Sing As If - HB


One of my cousins is having a leap year birthday, so thought I'd make a card with some frogs... BIG GRIN

Love frogs. Thought I'd keep it real simple for a change...

Inked the stamp (Cornish Heritage Farms "Frog Chorus") with various Distress greens, a touch of red and some black. Used a stamp positioner to add the various colors.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "The Woods Would Be Very..." 5pce set) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. 

Drew a rectangle around the image and quote using a Sakura metallic green gel pen. Added a butterfly from my stash. Didn't like the look of the stamped butterfly. sigh!!.

Added a piece of ladybug gauze ribbon on the corner.

On the inside Stamped another frog image (Artful Stamper "Tree Frog") I love, using the same colors as the front.

Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design "Happy Birthday/Let Them Eat..." 4pce set) inking first with a red and then here and there with a green and a touch of black. Clear embossed.

Stamped the "cousin" (Hero Arts "Designer Alphabet" set) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Done, now I need to create an envelope...
