Hoppy Birthday

Challenge #261 – Designer’s Choice – Critters that Hop


With Easter coming up soon, a lot of cards are featuring bunnies and eggs and in the Inkspirational challenge we require a critter that hops. Instead of using a bunny I decided to use frogs and the stamp set from SSS that features a kit with several frog stamps. Deciding on a slimline I stamped the 3 frogs and masked them off so I could stencil clouds and a few water lilies. Before removing the masks I also added the green section at the bottom using distress inks. The reeds were added and coloured with inks but I added some Inktense pencils to them after they dried. I also used some Sakura glaze pens to add details or some darker colour to the frogs. The frogs were mostly done with Inktense pencils, but I used different greens so they aren’t all exactly the same. My hubby liked the result. I cut the panel down slightly before adding it to the card front, but the panel is the only layer. Everything else is one dimensional. Hope you like it.

    1. Thanks Gerry. I don’t mind frogs if they are in a pond but wouldn’t like to find one in my garden.
