For both cards, I stamped all of the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with Copics, and cut them out. To create the scene on the card above, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth paper with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, flicked on and blotted off some water, and die-cut the strip with a grass border die. I used a scalloped border die to create the mask for the clouds and ink-blended a panel of Bristol paper with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
I adhered the grass to the cloud panel before adding it to a white card. All of the critters were glued flat, except for the bunny, which I popped up with foam tape. I added white dots to their eyes with a gel pen and some Zig Wink of Stella to the butterfly. Using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment with black ink.
I just love that sentiment, so I knew I had to use the cute toad! The patterned papers are from My Minds' Eye Collectable "Notable" paper pad. I trimmed the green paper to A2-size and adhered it to a white card. I die-cut a circle from the multi-colored paper and adhered it to my card. To create the blue frame, I layered two circle dies together.
I popped up the cute toad with foam tape and stamped the sentiment onto a strip of green cardstock. I bannered one end of the sentiment strip before adhering it to my card.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a "toad-ally awesome" day!
