Marvelous - Watercolour pencil and die cuts

This marvelous little frog is kicking back and enjoying some time on a lily pad. A Sheepski Designs image is the focus with a sentiment from Impression Obsession and die cut from Spellbinders.

Putting It Together

I actually crafted this while I was on vacation but had to wait to post it until after we could give it as a thank you to our friend who watched our cat and house while we were away on vacation. 

The image was one of those I coloured while traveling from BC, Canada to Missouri to visit family (and see the eclipse totality). I printed and stamped several images and cut each on to a small panel I could hold in my hand while colouring. I used watercolour pencils and waterbrushes while in the airports and even on the planes. Three planes and two long layovers, colouring helps to soothe my soul and keep me from going bonkers (especially since I accidentally left my phone at home and my audible book and music along with it).

I looked at the image and the small stash I brought with me and was inspired by the Feeling Sketchy.

I dry fit the image with some of the components and a sentiment from a set I had brought along with me. I decided I didn't want to trim much of the small panel I had printed and coloured.

I adhered everything to the card and added three rhinestones for the flower centres.

Inside, I added the thank you from another sentiment kit in my travel stash and a kitty heart die cut.
