Birthday Croak


I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower, Patrica Gomez. Please let me know if you too have a blog Patrica, so I may visit you.

This card was made for a young boy - 
although I can think of several lasses who may appreciate this one!

The sentiment was stamped over a stencilled snippet of card, cut to a banner shape.  The main panel of the card was splattered with blue ink as a start.

The frog was stamped, and coloured with my Prisma Color pencils before being cut  from another snippet of card and adhered to the main panel,  The reeds were stamped, and the die cut splash and water drops cut from a snippet of blue card, adhered and coated with glossy accents, as were the frogs eyes.

I stamped the bottom of the inside of the card with the same reeds I used on the front, using London Fog ink. 

All the stamps, the stencil and die cuts were freebies from a magazine.

Well done, Maxine, cute froggy stamp, love the droplets and reeds around it too, clever design.
Watching our federal election results am praying lots and lots for it too. May God have mercy on our nation.
And yours too dear sister thanks for being a blessing in my life.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x ps top part of my wound is holey, decided to check it as bit whingy, glad I did ..they’ve taken stitches out too soon again will be praying and watching it as holey can be ulcers on shin if not watchful. Pray yours are ok ❤️🙏🏻

A great fun card Maxine. I have this set of stamps too and found them very useful for making cards for my two little step-grandsons. I like the composition. The frog is really leaping out of the card. Kate x

Such a happy chappy he is and the water droplets with glossy accents look perfect. What a nice idea to use a stencil with water drops as a banner with the sentiment on it. Love it.
