Frog Heaven

Just Us Girls #606 – Color Week

Even though this background ended up being a bit busier than I expected I still quite like it. I used a technique found here but I didn’t get quite the same effect. Once it was done I couldn’t think what to do with it although the colours fit the JUG’s challenge. Then I remembered a Memory Box die called Splashing puddles and had a go at cutting it through the watercolour paper. I had to run it through a few times but it did cut nicely in the end. Using my latest SSS kit with the frogs etc. I stamped the simplest frog and fussy cut him once he was coloured. To colour him I used InkTense pencils. I added glossy accents to the splashes, raindrops and the eyes of the frog. I also used some of the fall outs to add a puddle under the frog and some splashes to the inside. I used the sentiment only on the inside as the front is too busy to add anything else. The card stock is from GKD and I made it into a square card for a change. Initially I wasn’t sure if this was going to work, but I quite like the end result and I have another piece to use for a 2nd card.

    1. I did, but it didn’t quite come out the way the technique shows. I was worried it was too busy but decided it would work if I was careful.

  1. Johanna… I like the result too! Your background is so interesting… it almost looks like rain. The “smooshing” usually leaves pulled areas of color. I am thinking perhaps you used less water on your block thus creating the streaks. I like it! I struggle all the time with color challenges. I think your card decision is perfect! Thank you so much for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls!

  2. I’m so pleased you like it. The technique creates some interesting results and I also think the kind of watercolour paper makes a difference too. Mine is quite textured.

  3. Johanna, this is a wonderful card! I love the background, whether it was quite how it was intended, or not. Those splash puddles are perfect, too. Great job on this and I do love the frog, as well as your post title.
