I'm very excited to be joining the very talented DRS Designs Design Team! I am honored they asked me and it should be fun creating cards with all of their wonderful images. Go have a peek!
Here's my first card. It is for their weekly challenge that is hosted on the DRS Designs Blog. This week's challenge is called the "Great Outdoors".
For my card, I stamped the adorable "Frog on a Log" onto X-Press it cardstock. I colored him with Copic markers. I then cut around the log and frog with detailed scissors. I stamped the image again onto an oval piece of X-Press It. I colored the image again, including the water and the greenery. I placed the frog and log onto the oval, thus creating a little dimension. The cloudy blue sky was created with Pan Pastels. Then using Diamond Glaze, I created the shine on the water. Looks pretty cool, in real life, I must admit.
The rest of the card is quite CAS. I framed the beige cardstock and oval with black cardstock. I did a little sponging around the beige with Adirondack Latte dye. I added some Baker's Twine and a button.
The sentiment is from DRS Designs and is called "UnFroggetable Birthday Greeting". I inked a portion of the sentiment with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker.
I rounded the bottom corners with a punch.
Sure hope you can join DRS Designs for this week's challenge!
