Hi there lovelies!
I hope you enjoyed the NND reveal this week!
The NND DT really inspires me, don't they!?
Well, I saw Jen Timko's photo for Freshly Made Sketches this week and LOVED it, I had to play along! I know I don't play challenges like I used to, especially the past few months have been just crazy busy at my house, I barely had time for my DT duties! So this was really fun!
I just LOVE this sketch!
Here it is...;-)
Aren't these little reptile friends just so darn cute!!?
I started with stamping the gator's solid image with Gumball Green ink on watercolor paper, and blended the color with some yellow. Then I heat embossed the outline of the gator in black. I did the same thing with the frog, except the stamp set didn't come with the solid image for his legs for I water colored them myself with Pool Party. Of course I had to give them blushed cheek ;-)
The sentiment was heat embossed in Pool Party on Basic Black cardstock, trimmed it, and popped on with foam tape between the green cuties. I sewed down a grass border, sprinkled some blue, green, and white sequins, done!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I am planning on making another card with this sketch (yes, I love it that much! It totally gave me more than one design ideas!), but we shall see...;-)
