Two cards featuring "Critters"
Time for a couple of cards for
Darnell's Twofer Card Challenge - #20 ... Critters... and I've chosen FROGS,
you see the beautiful green tree frogs now and again in our garden
For my first froggy card I stamped the image in grey and watercoloured it with Distress Oxides and then fussy cut it out..... I also stamped, coloured and fussy cut three large leaves. Miraculously I found this cool Designer Paper in my stash with water droplets on a leaf - perfect, then cut myself a rock from brown card, sponged on some brown ink for the frog to sit on. I stamped the sentiment in black and clear embossed and the used yellow card for the die cut 'hello'.... attached all the elements on a green card.
For the second card I stamped the frog in brown ink and watercoloured it with Distress Oxides...then only fussy cut the bottom around his legs.. Found some cool green leafy DP and die cut a round opening so I could slip the legs through. I stamped the sentiment in black and clear embossed and then the same for the 'get well soon' on matching green card. I painted on a few green leaves to the background and assembled the card.
I am also playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC239 - Helen's Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge... I think this little Get Well card would so suit a bloke feeling down in the dumps.
That was fun.... I had no idea to start what critters I could use, but I'm real happy I found this long unused stamp in my stash. Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it.... happy card making
