Green Lilypad Frogs

Here is the card I made for my cousin. I love this image and think I'll be getting good use out of this stamp set.

I am entering this card into a few challenges:

An oval was cut from white card using a Nestabilities classic oval die and the two frogs on lilypad image, from the Penny Black Toadily stamp set, was stamped centrally using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured using Copic sketch markers, as was the mini bee image:
  • Frogs: G05, G14, E41, BV00, B00
  • Lilypad: G05, G29, YG17
  • Water: B00, B41, B12
  • Bee: B00, Y17
 The image panel was then matted onto a green oval.

A strip of green card was stamped using the stripy border stamp from the Papermania Hampstead Icons and Sentiments stamp set using Versafine Smokey Gray archival pigment ink and matted across a panel of the filigree stars paper from the Papermania 'The Big One' Temptations paper pad.

Three green card candy, from Craftwork Cards, were coloured with a Copic marker (G29), and adhered to the right of the stamped strip.

The sentiment, from the Dovecraft Studio G Make A Wish mini stamp set, was stamped onto a scrap of white card using the Onyx Black ink and matted onto the green card.
