Froggie Birthday

Day 7 with Tim has been a nostalgic trip indeed.  I forgot how much I loved the Ranger Distress Embossing Powder, it has set in my drawer, in the back, dark, forgotten.  When these first came out my favorite thing to do was to create backgrouund blocks with the powders.  I swipe the block with the ink but intentionally miss places, dust with the powder "tattered rose", set it and then go in with the distress inks and as you can see on the bottom then flicked with water.  The block and the frog are both mounted to chipboard.  The frog was also done with the "green shutter" powder but after setting it, I then sand it to remove part of the powder and distress with the pads. His eyes are black gems, with just a dot of white to bring them to life.  The sentiment is from Brenda Williams.  The photo corners are cut from embossed tin foil and then airbrushed with copics. Card Stock is Bazzill.  I apologize for the dramatic slant on the card, we are overcast and dark grey in No. Calif. today and the house is lite like a cave and this is the only way I could get close to true color.  Happy Tuesday, Hugs
