I just had to play with the most amusing Funny Frog by Sami Stamps¬†ūüėĬ†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.
