Paper Players 301 Toadally Awesome

Happy Sunday, peeps....the days are just flying by!  How can it be almost July already!  And it's time for another Paper Players challenge!  Joanne is our creative hostess this week with a great sketch for us:

Hmmm, lots and lots of possibilities here!  I wanted to use some neglected stamps in my stash and I had never inked up this little toad from You're Sublime:

I stamped him in Stazon and watercolored him with Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay inks, then mounted him on two Swirly Scribbles diecuts, one in Bermuda Bay and the other in Emerald Envy:


They went on a panel of Soft Sky which was embossed with the Softly Falling EF and lightly sponged with Mint Macaron, then the whole shebang was mounted on some Moroccan DSP!  I did add a few green pearls from a past Paper Pumpkin kit for fun.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment again, masking off the image, and diecut it with a Nestability banner die.  Sort of a silly card, but it will be cute for a little boy's birthday, I think!  You can check out what the rest of the DT did by clicking here:

Grammy's (albeit dirty) garden card makes a fun ride!


Enjoy your day!
