Frogs in Underpants

Never did I dream that I would have a blog post titled "Frogs in Underpants", but I do!

It's Wednesday, which means it is time for a "What If? Wednesday Sketch".  You have two weeks to enter your card using the sketch posted on the Repeat Impressions blog...The House That Stamps Built.  All participants will have a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate.  I hope you'll play along with us. 

The sketch this week looks like this:

I decided to flip the sketch, and omit the rhombus (yep, I'm up on my common core standards!).  I guess you can say I'm a rebel.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions image "Underpants Frogs" (7120-L) with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the frogs with Copic markers and cut around each frog with my Cutter-bee detail scissors.

Using my Nestabilities die, I made the two triangular shapes to the sketch.  I sponged on the following dye inks to create a green color gradient: Whispers Savoy Green, Whispers Whispers Sage, and Whispers Green Leaf.  I paper pierced around the triangles, faux stitched with a colored pencil, and framed with black cardstock.  I cut the circle with a Nestabilities die, and sponged it and paper pierced it as well.  It too was framed with black cardstock.

I paper pierced around a piece of Doodlebug Design patterned paper, faux stitched with a colored pencil, and framed with black and white cardstock.  I arranged all of my elements to adhere to the sketch, and then placed the frogs onto the card.

A bright pink polka dotted bow was added to the card for the finishing touches.

In some way, this card reminds me of my bedroom when I was a child.  I had this hideous (though I'm fond of the memory) wallpaper with pink and green frogs sitting on lily pads. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  Make sure you visit the other Rock Stars for some more sketch interpretations.

A super card, Kecia, and I loved your wallpaper memories. That ribbon is an awesome detail for these pink undi'd froggies. This set is just the cutest set ever! Fab job with it.

Ha! In high school I used to tell my brother to 'bite my rhombus' knowing he would not know what a rhombus was LOL! I even made him a shirt with the saying. Of course, that was 40 years ago and can I even remember what a rhombus is now????

Great card...that black really makes your sketch pop!
