I Toad You So ...

I guess you would have read the last line of my last post for the title to make sense. Oh well. This is my take on the latest sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet (scroll down to see the sketch).

I can't seem to get through a week without pulling out this stamp set and thought of this little guitar-picking toad/frog as soon as I saw the sketch required a relatively small focal point image. The image was colored using Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I thought the rickrack would be a fun touch and added the bow when I realized it need a little something 'more.'

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Black cardstock; Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6-inch paper pad; Black ink pad; Penny Black Toadily and Wordsworth Everyday Whimsy stamp sets; Black rickrack and ribbon from Wal-Mart; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; 3M foam mounting tape.

Can you handle one more?
