Sweet Stampin' - Water (April Showers)

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'Water (April Showers)'  which echo's the UK weather perfectly. Mind you it's more like winter here rather than spring, so maybe it should be renamed as 'Snow (April Showers). Lol. So turn up your heating (unless you live in warmer climes) and grab your stamp and make card or project and join in with us.

So for my card I used a stamp from our sponsor this week - Robyn's Fetish. This gang of cuties is called 'Five Little Froggies' and you can find the digi stamp here. I coloured the image with Copic Pens...even the sky.


Here's What I Did
I matted a 7" x 7" white scalloped card base with a trellis die cut square from patterned paper and an identical sized square from green card. Next I printed the image directly onto colouring card stock and die cut it into a smaller square to fit the shape underneath. I coloured the image with Copic pens and a clear glitter pen on the roof.  The finished image was layered onto the mat underneath using foam tape.

To complete the card I added a flower, a couple of die cut leaves and a few gems.

Here's What I Used
Stamp: Robyn's Fetish 'Five Little Froggies'
Copics: Frogs & Grass - YG00, YG01, YG03, YG17, YG23 / Sky - B0000, B000 / Stones - W0, W1, W2, W3, W5 / Wood - E31, E33, E35 / Roof - R02, R22, R27, R32, R59 
Dies: Tonic 'Trellis Squares', MFT 'Blueprint 14'

I love this Janine! What a cute stamp (that's the one I wanted to use when I thought it was a team Abi challenge) and your colouring is fabulous, that sky! So brilliant. So beautifully done. I love the trellis frame and your gorgeous felt rose is such a gorgeous finish. Truly gorgeous hun. Hugs, Wends x
