A Gift For You

Don’t you just love the water on this little guy’s toes? Here we have a double challenge card for sketch challenge SC197 and High Hopes Challenge # 2 (use blue, green, brown). I normally don’t do color challenges because I just can’t do a scene with so few colors. Because this one just said “blue” instead of a particular blue, I felt that I could do a variety of blues and complete the scene.

This cute image was received from Anemone (Thanks Kelly!) over at the PIF images thread.

I did my usual Cut then Ink Technique to get my layers to line up. The Easy Sunset Technique was used for the sky. Everything else is sponged and stamped.

Stamps: High Hopes Froggy Gift, Papertrey Ink Pond Life, The Stampin Place Water Ripples
Paper: River Rock, Whisper White
Ink: Blue Bayou, Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Black, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencil & baby oil, white gel pen
