HA! The Papertake Weekly Challenge this week is Elegant Embossing. Well I think Frogs in Bow ties are Elegant aren't they? This stamp is a new Friendly Kritters Stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms they are called Frog Chorus. They are just in perfect tune!
I colored them with my Copics, which is really easy with these stamps. The shading is all in the stamps! The detail is wonderful. I matted with a scrap piece of brown card stock. I took a blueish color or scrap card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug and the Music embossing folder. I inked it lightly with a colorbox cats eye ink. The plaid glitter paper is from DCWV, and is from the Spring Glitter stack. The card base is dark green Bazzil. And for a little more elegance I used a piece of wide gold wire ribbon. The sentiment is from Aud Designs. Odd colors for me, I have been using so many lighter pastel colors, but it just didn't feel right for these guys. They needed some manly colors.
I am hoping to get some projects caught up today. Plus the normal things... like the laundry.
Hope you have a great Thursday!
