Mr Frogie went a courting

Morning all

Thought I would show you the card I made with some of the goodies from the Sincerely Yours craft fair held in Plymouth on Sunday, I do hope it was a success for them and that they will be coming back. 

This is from the Fiddle'n Frog range that is stamps and dies to match but I found when I got home that I had not bought the water lily stamp set that goes with the dies to make the flowers, but they have been ordered now, as I just coloured the flowers that I had cut out with the die.

I am not very good at colouring using alcohol pens in any shape or form but give me my pencils and I am marginally better, not too bad at using distress inks.

I coloured the background in with Distress inks
  • Stormy Sky
  • Wild Honey
  • Forest Moss
I then stamped the image straight onto the card and coloured in using my Promarkers, Crafters Companion Sparkly Pens, to do the lily pads and then stamped the sentiment straight onto the card and in case you can't read it; it says You're Toadally Awesome!

Finally here is the card I made.

Sorry I did not get around catching up on you all yesterday, but I will be back soon when I have finished making three lots of soap, Black Cardamom, Lemon Lime and Eucalyptus and finally Lavender which will take me about 5 hours.

Love Alison
