The CYCI#134 challenge for this week is a pet challenge so I was looking through my stamps and I don't have any traditional pet stamps! I'm shocked!
I did, however, have the Boy Basics: Frog Hop stamps from Papertrey Ink. My husband had a bullfrog when we were in college so I thought this'll work!
I stamped the frog with Wild Wasabi ink and then watercolored it using the same ink being careful not to smear the image. I stamped the lily pad with Garden Green ink and then watercolored it with the same ink, again, being careful not to smear the image.
For the background behind the frog I did a light watercolor wash in Soft Sky ink and Pool Party ink on Papertrey Ink white cardstock making sure to not get my aqua painter brush too wet. I adhered that to a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock.
The sentiment was stamped in Memento black ink. I then adhered the sentiment to a piece of Soft Sky card stock. I stamped some flies here and there in black ink. All that was left was putting all the pieces together. I wanted the frog image to the side and decided it needed an edge so I cut the frog circle. The sentiment looked strange after that so I decided to cut that circle, too.
Here's a list of the other supplies I used:
Papers: SU! - Watercolor Wonder DSP
Tim Holtz - distress watercolor cardstock
Tools: PTI - Boy Basics: Frog Hop die
Spellbinders - Nestablilities Small & Large Circles
Tim Holtz - Tonic Paper Distresser
