Papercraft Star 86


Happy Leap Year Day !  I think a cake or some cookies are in order, what do you think ??

Our theme this week at Papercraft Star is...


and here is my funny little froggy guy

This took me a whole Sunday to conceptualize, and then make.  Now I am not a fast card composer, but that was ridiculous !  Of course, part of it was that I had colored and fussy cut the frog, and then lost it somewhere in the netherworld that is my craft room.

The tag was first colored with Ranger distress ink, Broken China and Peeled Paint.  Then it was sprayed with Tattered Angels mist, Marshmallow and Gold.  After that, I used an Inkadinkado lace stamp and white ink to complete the tag.  The frog (found as a coloring page on the internet) is on an oval punched cardstock that ran through the Cuttlebug without much thought, and then notched.  The sentiment is computer generated, the frog colored with Copics and Gelly Roll pens (white & gold) and the tag finished with a button, bow, and some Stickles on the edge.

Spencer is making up his own words, and they kinda make sense ...
