Frog In Paradise

Good Morning Ladies,
It is very cool out this morning and raining. But everything is great! Soon we leave for the stamp show. I can't wait to see what is new out there in the stamping world.
The card for today is Frog In Paradise
The background for this card was created using the ink spray smoosh technique. Dylusion ink sprays were used on watercolor paper. The palm trees image is from Stampscapes. The water image is from Eat Cake Graphics. The frog was stamped with Archival Ink on watercolor paper. He was then colorized with watercolors and hand cut. I am not sure what company the frog is from.
Happy Scraps,

Tags

Good Morning Ladies,
The weather has cooled off. It is fall I think. Hoodie weather. My season!
The project for today is tags.
 This tag was created using a Lavina unicorn image. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz. The background was sprayed with ink sprays. The edge was done with a gold sharpie.
This tag was created using a CTMH clear set. The images were stamped in Archival ink and the tag was stippled with orange dye ink.
The background of this tag was created using the left over paint from a Gel Press pull. I don't know the company of the giraffe. The flower was created with flower punches.
This tag was created using Sheena Douglass images. The sun was created with the Tim Holtz round tool and acrylic paint. The sky was stippled in with blue dye ink. The kite was colorized with watercolors.

Sledding Polar Bear

Good Morning Ladies,
I was MIA. Getting ready for the dog show this past weekend. I made several awards frames. Things were way busy.
The card for today is Sledding Polar Bear
Oh what fun! This card was created using the ink spray smoosh technique for the background. Dylusions ink sprays and tattered angels ink spray were used. White cardstock was torn to create the snow hill. Stickles was used to highlight the snow. A Tim Holtz round tool was used with acrylic paint to create the moon. The polar bear image is from The Ink Pad. He was stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with watercolors. Then hand cut. A Stampscapes image was used to create branches above the polar bear. A white gel pen was used for the falling snow.
