Fathers Day

Good evening. Here's a Father's Day card to share and it is made with a really cute Penny Black Slapstick stamp, called Toadily Happy. My DH loves frogs. I could easily pass on this fixation, but as long as it is a cute frog, I'm ok with it. This one's a cutie, colored - of course - with copics. I tried to do the 'reflections' in the water bit, not sure how much it shows up in the picture. Cut the image with a S/binder, Labels 23. I had to use the 'out-of-the-box' cutting technique in the top part. This one was a bit awkward to use that technique, but I didn't want to lose any of the image. I embossed the blue mat, which I just cut straight, so as to fit the die-cut image. I neglected to write the folder company or specific name, but it is a swirly one - probably C/bug. Thought it looked sort of 'water-like'. I used some sparkly stickles to add some shine, rubbing it on different raised areas with my finger. The additional butterflies were from an MS punch, on some scraps that I had used TH Distress Ink to do some sponging for another project. (guess this counts as a snippet for the playground). -   The layers were adhered to a yellowy-green piece of Bazzill textured cardstock. Then I used another little snipped to stamp the sentiment, which I also heat embossed after inking to add a bit of shine. Then I crumpled the tag after cutting a V at each end, popped up on some pop dots. There, it's done, and he won't see it until he's supposed to. I'm off to see if the ladies will let me in the playground. They seem to be having so much fun. Here I go...wish me luck http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/06/pixies-crafty-snippets-challenge-23.html
