P-laid back frog

No Design paper is the challenge at Craft Your Passion this week.We also have the fabulous Doodle Pantry,Little Miss Muffet Stamps and Pizzazzaplenty as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

On my card I’ve used Little Frog from Doodle Pantry.This is a great value set.It comes with two different images,uncoloured and coloured.There are two fab backing papers and two sentiments too.This is one of the uncoloured images that I coloured with ProMarkers.I gave him a coating with a clear glaze pen to give him the waxy sheen that tree frogs have and gave him some nice bulbous eyes with Glossy Accents.I’ve two different techniques for the backgrounds.The plaid pattern is drawn onto plain white cardstock using a ruler and ProMarkers.I love the way the colours overlap as the ink is translucent.The other backing is made by passing a piece of Whitewash card through an embossing folder then sanded.This is actually supposed to be a Christmas one but I think it can be used anytime. I dug out some acrylic dew drops to embellish.
