My project today is made with Rubbernecker’s Frog Fishing and Mandarin twine from The Twinery. I love to create dimensional scenes and the Frog Fishing gave me a perfect main focal point to build a scene around with foliage, cattails, water and a darling striped fishing line to add dimension and texture.
I started by stamping the frog twice on watercolor paper, watercoloring with Distress Ink. I cut the frog and fishing rod out of the first one and pop it up over the second. I cut a piece of twine and glued to the fishing rod with Glossy Accents and left plenty to attach down in the water later on. I cut a piece of watercolor paper to use as the base for my scene and used an Inkssentials Ink Blending tool and handmade cloud template to sponge in sky and water.
I die cut two Poppy Stamps Grassland Borders and attached them to the background base. I created a double matted frame using Spellbinders oval dies and layered over the grass and card base attaching with mounting tape. I tucked the frog in between the grasses and popped him up with mounting tape. I glued the twine fishing line down in behind the foliage with Glossy Accents. I stamped a few extra cattails, cut them out and placed among the grass and added a few punched pieces of foliage from Martha Stewart’s Branch punch and Punch Bunch Ash Leaf.
I love red and green together the red butterflies seemed like the perfect finishing touch to soften and add colorful interest to the scene.
I hope you have enjoyed our blog hop. We sure had lots of fun bringing it to you today.
