Froggy went a courtin'.................CBC15

I got these images from a lady who stamped them for me as I do not have this cute little frog. Isn't he just so darn cute.? Not sure of the stamp company that makes him, if and when I find out I will let you all know.
This was done for a Belli Challenge from Chrissy. Check out her blog and her challenge and run with it. This week is using pencils. For this one I used watercolor pencils and my aqua painter. Really simple and cute to make. I hadn't used my watercolor pencils in forever so this was a great challenge.
Here is Chrissy's challenge. This Weeks Belli Challenge is PENCILS Your challenge this week is to make a project using any kind of PENCIL! Art Pencils with Gamsol, Watercolor Pencils, Metallic Pencils...let your imagination go wild! I bought a box of Prismacolor pencils and have let them sit. I also have a box of watercolor pencils, I rarely use!
Supplies needed:
Watercolor Pencils
Aqua Painter
Stamp set of choice
WW card stock, Black, Bashful Blue and Garden Green card stock
Black Gel Pen
Blue Grosgrain Ribbon
Thanks is a rub on I got at the dollar store
Stamp images on WW card stock. Color in with watercolor pencils and your aqua painter. Set aside to dry for a few minutes. When dry punch them out with a 1 1/4 punch and then with Garden Green punch out 4 @ 1 1/2 inch pieces mount them to the back of the froggies!
With Black Gel Pen, add dashed lines around each green piece. Cut black card stock at 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 mount images on this piece evenly.
Bashful blue is cut at 5 1/4 by 4, I used little circles with a dot in the center of them so it kind of looked like little tadpoles floating around on the blue. I used bashful blue to stamp them. Added a blue grosgrain ribbon to the side and then rubbed on the thanks aside of that. See sample for placement of all pieces.
Last cut your WW card stock at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 fold in half for for a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. Mount the blue with all your layers onto the white card stock. Your done and it was so easy to do.
Hope you enjoyed today's project. I will try and get another one out today.
