Fathers Day

Good afternoon, and I'm here with a card I intended to get entered into Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Challenge, but alas, once again, I am too late. I see I could still link but I think the April Showers theme closed awready. I'll share the card here and I do believe I may use it as a Father's Day for DH. He likes frogs...and I think this one is cute. He can just use his imagination to decide which one of us, is getting the shower.


- image is Penny Black, Frolicking Frogs, colored with copics on Xpress. Used a bit of Glossy Accents on the puddle & raindrops. Also hit the shower with a Stardust Silver Star pen prior to the Glossy Accents...so IRL it's quite sparkly

- diecut image with S/binders Labels 4, sponged with Memento Summer Sky while still in the die

- matted with Paper Studio Linen door - a 4.5x6.5 pack - and this paper looks a bit like 'grass paper', diecut with S/Binders 5x7 Detailed Scallops. I liked this lacy, grassy look behind the frolicking frogs

- cardbase made with the Grand Labels S/binder 4, on a turquoise shade of textured Bazzill. I tried some other blues, but liked this one best. I still have room for a slim-line sentiment at the bottom of the card.

I hope that you're having a pleasant Friday afternoon in your part of the world, getting ready for a relaxing or fun weekend. I understand that some of my blog buddies have a wonderful stamp show to attend this weekend. So have a grand time, don't buy anything I wouldn't like!!! Hugs to all who visit here. Come again soon.
