Oh Hoppy Day! - Tutorial

Hello and happy Monday to you! I have another repeat card from the inspiration hop last week. I wanted to get the step by step photos posted for this one, too. It uses images from Blooming With Blessings. I also followed pretty much the same layout as the Round Sunset card I posted last week.

 To begin, I stamped the frog with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copics, starting with YG21.

Added YG03, leaving just some of the undersides of the frog the lighter color.

Deepened the shading with YG05.

Added YG07.


Then added YG09.
For the lily pad, I filled in with G03.

Added YG93.

Added YG95. I was trying to make the coloring on the lily pad a little splotchy.


Then I added YG97 mostly just to shadow under the frog. After coloring, I cut out the image.  

Next, I cut a circle of Pure Luxury White, using Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, and sponged Memento Summer Sky ink.  

 I masked off the sky with sticky notes and sponged Memento Bahama Blue. 

Removed the mask and sponged Memento Danube Blue very lightly around the edges.  

I stamped the grass (from Wild About You) with Memento Bamboo Leaves.  

I adhered the cut out image with Pop Dots and added a bit of shading to the water with B000.  


I adhered the circle to a white card base (4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches) and added the sentiment. I used my Scor-Buddy to add the score lines to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll have a new project a little later in the week. Have a great day!
