New Frog Friend - Whimsy Challenge

Whew... I simply don't know where my time is going to but it seems like I'm always busy but am always behind and this week is no exception.  Today is Wednesday and that means there's a new challenge over at Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Challenges and the theme this week is 'green is the main colour'. The talented ladies have come up with some fabulous creations for you to check out.  I chose one of Chrissy's September releases called New Frog Friend and I think this little fellow is so darned cute.   I used paper from My Mind's Eye and some woven jute that I ran over a brown ink pad for colour; then coloured the image with Copics and sponged in the sky with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass.  The dragonflies are Make it Crafty Chipboard - I love that chipboard... you just tap it into an ink pad and voila!  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Circle Postmark Sentiments
I have to tell you about a fab little parcel arrived today and am chompin at the bit to try them... from Whimsy Stamps I received the Bottle Cap die, Bottle Cap Sentiments, Film Marker die and Film Marker Sentiments.  I know I am on the Whimsy DT and you would expect to hear something like this from me but honestly, I've been using Whimsy dies and sentiments for ages and I love them.  The stamps give crisp, clear and perfect images and I use a Cuttlebug for the dies and never have any trouble.
