A Boy and His Frog

My mojo has returned after a brief hiatus. :-)

Between last night and this morning I've made 4 new cards. SO, keep an eye out for new artwork! Also, I'm nearing 10,000 hits on my blog and I'm going to be having a contest for blog candy when I do...so keep coming back (the more times you visit...the faster blog candy becomes available!)

Without further ado...here's one of my new creations! This guy is another image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I received him in an image swap. He's colored in with Prismacolor pencils and I used odorless mineral spirits to blend the pencils. The background papers are from Stampin' Up (thanks to my friend Concetta!) and I used a Stampin' Up background stamp on the blue to give it some texture. Then I used an old CTMH stamp to make the "dirt" under his bare feet. Also, if you look closely...there are some TINY screwhead brads that I used as the fasteners on the boy's overalls. I love how it turned out! Hopefully you do to.

I'm going to post a couple pictures of the card from different angles. Also, you can click on the photos to view them larger.





Enjoy!

This is too cute. Looking at this card, I think of my girlfriends little boy - this is the kind of thing he 'scares' his mum with, frogs, crickets, ants, you name it. TFS
