At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Sami Stamps as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I just had to play with the most amusing Funny Frog by Sami Stamps 😀 He’s been coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers,including the Blender to create some texture to his frog skin,and to add to the fun he had to have a coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer on his glasses along with a furry moustache,to make it more tactile.I did have to wrack my brains on how to bring the idea to reality.In my stash I had some Polar White Flower Soft but that wasn’t the colour I wanted his ‘tache to be…So I pulled out some Terracotta Posh Impressions Rainbow Ink that I’ve had for ages and added a couple of drops,stirred with a cocktail stick in a medicine measuring cup!Once it was dry it was stuck into place with some dries clear PVA.Cut a shaped easel for the base and added these papers that I bought quite a few Summer’s ago in a sale.I fussy cut him and plonked him on top of an embossed and die cut piece.The sentiment has been computer generated and cut into a banner shape with some paper twine wrapped around one end.I added some Shimmer Dots that were originally silver to decorate but out came a coordinating Copic Ciao to transform them!This is for my DD1 who has recently move into a new home with a couple of her friends whilst she’s at uni.

    This frog is too cute!! And using the crystal effects for his glasses is such a nice touch.. Your paisley pad is also sooo cute.. I happen to love paisleys they can be so colorful and using it as a ‘pad’ is such a good idea!! Thank you so much for joining us at BSCB.
