Pink Froggie

Hello and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. There is a new sketch challenge posted at StampTV and this is my card for it. I used images from my new set, Little Critters.

Here is the sketch this week. I hope you'll play along. One random participant will win a free stamp set from Gina K Designs.

I started sponging my background, with Memento New Sprout ink, from the bottom.

Then sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

In the center, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe.

Then, from the top, I sponged Memento Angel Pink.

Then some Memento Tangelo.

I used the silhouette fern, from Little Critters and stamped using Memento Bamboo Leaves. I stamped twice before re-inking each time, to make some fainter images, too.

I cut the background into thirds.

I used Copics to color the frog, starting with YR000 on the belly.

Added a little shading with YR12.

Filled in the rest of the frog with RV81.

Added shading with RV23.

Deepened the shading with RV25 and used YG23 for the eyes.

  On the mushroom, I started with Y17.

Added Y23.

Then filled in with Y000. I also added a touch of YR02 around the edges.

On the underside and stem, I used YR000.

Then shaded with YR02.

I layered the panels with Pure Luxury Passionate Pink and used a Creme de Menthe card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
