Courting Froggy

     Today I've scheduled a post with one of the silliest, most delightful frogs ever seen.  The image is from My Stitch Back in Twine and is available as a freebie for the challenge at Aussie Digital Artists challenge.


     The expression on his face is so sublime and the gift he offers so typical of a suitor that I just had to add that sentiment.  Do any of you remember a song from the early 50s by that title?  My dad used to play the guitar and sing it which is probably why I remember it.  :-D

     The image and sentiment are printed directly onto the front of the card, then colored with ProMarkers.  I found a leftover outside piece from a die cut I used for another project (Amy Designs die) from which I had already cut and used a corner.   Rather than trash the rest of it, I layered it around the image on this card.  The open corner looked a bit odd so I took out my ProMarker and a ruler, and inked around the entire thing, making it look like a completely separate piece had been put on the card front.  Amazing!

     The teal paper was embossed for the other project before cutting it so I had some unplanned but great texture on this card.  Happy circumstance.
