Heat Croak!

I ran errands after supper last night and couldn’t believe how hot it felt even after the sun had set!  I came home, put the groceries away and sat down to do some more coloring.  I chose an adorable frog named Beach Baby Jayme, a digital image by the talented Crissy Armstrong.  I had a lot of fun bringing this green gal to life!  The sentiment on the outside says, “100% Hot” and the inside sentiment says, “100% SUMMER!”  Perfect for this week’s weather!
I’m submitting this as another entry for Crissy’s July DT call.  Also, if you like her images, be sure to check out Whimsy Stamps right now as they have all their digital images at 25% off until the 31st!

Supplies:
Stamps – Whimsy (Crissy Armstrong’s Beach Baby Jayme), Impression Obsession (sentiments)
Paper – Paper Trey white CS, SU Melon Mambo & Pretty in Pink CS, Anna Griffin DP
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Pumpkin Pie (outside sentiment), Melon Mambo (inside sentiment), Daffodil Delight (sun shape outlining outside sentiment), Wild Wasabi (sponging around main image piece)
Accessories – gemstones, paper flowers, SU pastel brads, foam squares (popped up main image circle), CM Circle template, SU ticket corner punch, sponge
Coloring – Copic markers (used a clear Spica pen on the sand to add dots of sparkle)
