New Frog Stamp by Faire Chase Lane

I am very excited to have just opened my new Etsy shop with my first set of Faire Chase Lane original stamps. These first four stamps were made based on critters that garden with me. Today we are going to make a card with the frog stamp.  My shop can be found at www.etsy.com/shop/FaireChaseLane
This card began with Distress Oxide Ink smooshing on watercolor paper.  I made a blue smooshing, using broken China and Peacock Feathers, and a green smooshing, using Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron.

Although you can't see it in the photos, I added shimmer by sprinkling Bells of Ireland Green and Bachelor Button Blue Magicals into the smooshings. There is a link at the bottom of the blog for these if you are interested.

To give this card lots of dimension I stamped the image twice onto the green smooshing.  I stamped the frog again onto white watercolor paper so he could be colored separately later.
This frog likes to hang out on our corn stalks. Some of the corn stalk is in the background and some of it in the foreground.  I cut the pieces out and placed them on an A2 sized piece of the blue smooshed paper.  The foreground pieces were put into place on top of the background pieces using foam tape.

The frog was colored using Arteza Real Brush Markers then put in place with foam tape. A blue smooshed frame was made and placed on top with a little more foam tape, then the decorated panel was affixed to a blue cardstock base. Glossy Accents was applied to the frog and the card was left to dry overnight.

The image isn't centered in the frame because I initially thought my sentiment would go on the side of the card then changed my mind, but that is OK.  It is our imperfections that make us beautiful.

The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp! "Sea You Soon" stamp set.

So here are most of the supplies I used.  Remember to check out my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/FaireChaseLane The first customer to purchase a stamp gets a second stamp, from my shop, of their choice, for free.
