Here is the challenge graphic and the card I created using this challenge:
Oh my gosh what a fun challenge! I hope you can join us! I used an old background stamp that I have, I believe it is from Hero Arts. I used Memento ink in Lulu Lavender. This stamp has to be at least 5 years old. It is very basic, and a must have. If you cannot find one from Hero Arts, other companies will have similar dotted stamps.
I first folder a kraft card into invitation size. I rounder the outer corner. Then on white cardstock I used the background stamp and ink. I trimmed the cardstock and rounded the edges and glued it down. Next, I stamped with black ink (Memento) onto white cardstock using a new stamp set taht I have. It is from Avery Elle. I stamped the frogs, lily pad, floral images and cat tails. I used Copic markers to color these images. I placed a patterned paper piece from My Favorite Things on top the background stamped image, to simulate water, and rounded the bottom corners.
Next, I trimmed a plain piece of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment. I added the other images and mounted the frogs using dimensional adhesive. I saved one floral image to put atop the ribbon, which I added last and tied.
