Frog Star

I made this card for a challenge I do with some of my SCS friends. We took off Easter week, but the challenge was on again for the 31st!! I posted to my SCS gallery on Monday, but waited until today to post it to my blog because of the Rubbernecker KK release.

And jeepers was this a challenge!! Of course it was designed by non other than Cindy (Mothermark on SCS) That girl comes up with the goofiest ideas. Now, I'm shape challenged. I don't like working with hearts or stars all that much. They never look right on my cards. I always appreciate seeing them on other cards but I'm usually shaking my head and saying to myself, now why can't I do that.

I also rarely work with fish. I don't know why, probably because there are so many of you out there who can do a much better job with water scenes than I can. So, now you know how tough this was for me. Stars and fish.......okay, here were Cindy's requirements: We had to use ALL the supplies: DP, 3 brads, Ribbon, Star, and a fish that had to be in a circle because the dp reminded her of bubbles (GOOD GRIEF) Well, I got 'em all in.

The images are Rubbernecker and are watercolored. The fish has ultrafine crystal glitter on it in order to give the scales some sparkle.

Supplies:
Stamps - Rubbernecker - Frog with Fishing Pole, Drop me a line text
Paper - dp, SU night of navy, old olive, taken with teal, watercolor
Ink - Black Onyx Versafine
Accessories - watercolor pencils, blending pen, ribbon, brads, cuttlebug diecut star, SU key tag punch, nestability circles, Tim Holtz Retractable piercing tool, quickie glue pen, ultrafine crystal glitter
