Through the Craft Room Door Anything Goes Challenge

This week's challenge is sponsored by Eureka Stamps. Besides their rubber stamps, Eureka also has card-making supplies and lots of fun digi stamps. For this week I chose Eureka's Frog on Side image.

He's pretty cute, don't you think? He looks like my hubby the last couple of weeks in Hawaii. But don't tell Gary I said that. I don't think he would appreciate the humor, or lack thereof. Anyway, I printed the frog on X-Press It CS. Then I cut a mask for him and brayered Stampin' Up inks, (Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, and Creamy Caramel), around him for the sky and beach.

The frog was colored with Copics: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, E21, E23, E53, E55, E57, V12, V15, Y13, YR14, RV11, RV13, BV11, BV13. I added a bit of Stickles to his glass rim and contents. I paper-pieced his swim trunks with a bit of Authentique Journey DP.

Using Stampin' Up CS, I die-cut trees, clouds, grass, and a sun with the following dies: Cheery Lynn Nautical Wheeler, MFT Grass Border & Clouds, and La-La Land Crafts Palm Tree. My sentiment is from Create with TLC.

Check out the great pieces by my talented teammates! And then have fun creating whatever your heart desires and show us what you've done. Looking forward to seeing your creations! Aloha!

  15. Your card is fabulous. The frog is way too cute and I love the scene you created for him. I'm especially taken with the Palm Trees.

    Palm Trees amuse me for some reason.

    I also love that you compare that frog to your husband.
