Unfrogettable

Is anyone else humming Nat King Cole? :) I had to have this Unfrogettable set and now that it is retiring, I realize I have 'toadally' neglected these little critters. I've never kreated a scene type card, but I had a lot of fun with this one. It's a little busy, but I wanted to represent each of these cute critters. I love using my Markers to get various colors on one stamp. So I markered up my stamps and then huffed to remoisten the ink and set in place. A few images I colored in as well. I love the way my little snail is peeking through the flowers. My little frog was cut out using Paper Snips (scissors) and is perched upon his 'stool' with dimensionals. I also snipped out one of his dragonfly friends and popped him out with a dimensional as well. Aren't these little guys so cute -I love their big eyes, so I accented them with a dab of Crystal Effects in each eye (if you click on the picture to enlarge it you may see that a little clearer). I kreated the sky and cloud background last, using a scrap Punched Scallop piece and sponging Bashful Blue ink around it. I paper pierced little trails behind my dragonflies using my Piercing Mat and tool. The sentiment was inked in Green Galore and popped it out with my Oval Punch. I punched out another oval in Green Galore and offset it behind the sentiment and popped that up on dimensionals too. I layered my 'scene' on top of Green Galore and then Taken with Teal. Not my usual type card, but I did have fun! Don't miss out on this Unfrogettable set, or any other that is retiring - you only have until Aug 10th to make it yours! Let me know what you think of my little critters :)

For now, go kreate

Adorable... you always come up with the cutest ideas.

I don't own that set, but have read about how many people are sad to see it go.

Awesome card!
