My Little Prince

Hello, Friends and Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend. I spent most of it in bed with a back injury. So I did a lot of reading and watched the Super Bowl. I guess it was fitting since we had 2 feet of snow from our last storm so I couldn’t go anywhere anyway. It started Thursday evening and finally let up just before noon on Saturday.

Our new challenge is up at Craft Your Passion and this week our theme is Anything Goes with “No Pattern Paper.” But you can make your own pattern paper designs using stamps, dry and heat embossing, markers, doodling, etc. One of our sponsors this week is Doodle Pantry and I am using one of their digis called “Little Frog” for my card.

Did you know that there are literally around 5000 frog species in the world? That’s a lot of frogs. Too bad they aren’t all princes…LOL
I chose a couple of Hero Arts stamps for my background paper using a watermark technique just randomly stamping with Versamark ink. I colored my image with Copics, added a Spring Border die cut from Memory box and scrap ribbon from my stash.
I also heat embossed the butterfly stamp using blue powder on the blue cardstock and orange powder on orange cardstock. Then I cut them out and adhered them to the card bending the wings for a 3D effect. This would make a great card for a little boy.

These are the Copics I used to color my sweet little frog image.


I’m entering this card in the following challenges.

Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp – Animal Antics
Crafty Ribbons Challenge – Men or Boys

Thanks for stopping by. See ya next time...

Hugz,
