The Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge - April 1st 2015

Happy Easter everyone!  I hope you're enjoying this lovely long weekend, I sure have :o)  Today I'm sharing my entry into the latest challenge at The Outlawz.  The digi we received this month was a lovely frog courtesy of Encino Stamps.

My original thought was "What am I going to do with a FROG?"  lol.  But it has really made me think outside the box and I love what I came up with.  I googled some images of frogs and lilypads and that's what got me my direction.  

I've coloured the frog in with copic markers and the lily pads are circles punched out and then I cut the lily pad shape into them with some cutterbee scissors (my favourite for fussy cutting).  The background is watercolour paper that I went to town on with every blue distress ink I have.  That's the first time I've done that ink the surface, spray with water and dip paper into it technique and I love how that turned out.  Inside the card is the other part of the A4 sheet of watercolour paper, so it's nice blue water inside.

I hope you enjoy my creation.  To check out the other entries please click here :o)

Thank you for stopping by and have a safe and happy Easter everyone!
