Happy Hump Day! Gorgeous sunny day today in Montreal, spring is finally starting to make an appearance! Today I am sharing this Toad-Ally Awesome My Favorite Things project :)
The new Toad-ally Awesome stamp set is such fun! I picked it up last week and had to play with it right away. I started by coloring my toad with some G2 Copic family of markers and added some dot detail with my darkest G29 and some white Gellyroll pen. He was such fun to color! I then used the coordinating die for the toad.
I wanted a fun little scene for the toad to be the star of the show so cut my Neena 80 lbs card base to 4 x 5.25 and used the MFT Stencil Cloud with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink. I then opted for the MFT End of the Rainbow Die-Namics die set. I die cut the rainbow die from multiple MFT and Lawn Fawn card stocks
I glued the rainbow to the card base and die cut the accompanying cloud die as well as the stand alone stitched cloud dies (also by MFT) from another panel of Neena 80lbs. I glued them to the base and placed my toad with some foam tape for added dimension (I regretted not using an action wobbler for the toad, I may still change that).
Once my scene was complete, I felt I needed a bigger sentiment so I stamped and embossed a portion of the sentiment on black card stock and the end of the sentiment (friend) on the bottom of the cloud. I substituted the awesome on the stamped sentiment with he Neat and Tangled Awesome die.
Once I was happy with my placement, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels and some Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles and the eyelash googly eyes on the toad (really makes it look like he is staring at you, lol!)
Thanks for taking the time!
