CCC #5 - Pond

Time for Week #5 at CASology!  This week our cue card is:


It so exciting to see how many people are coming out each week for our challenges.  We now have 211 members on the site and are averaging over 80 submissions each week.  I hope that keeps growing you really should give us a try if you haven`t already.

For this challenge I dug out a stamp that has been siting unloved in my stash for a few years now.  Out with my Copics, a little fussy cutting and a blue cloud and my pond was born.


I stamped my frog on a piece of white cardstock then used some Copics to colour and shade my froggie.  I fussy cut my frog so that I could put him in my pond.  When I don't have the right sentiment stamp I turn to my computer for help.  I typed my sentiment and printed it, then I used repositionable tape to adhere my white focal panel on the printout so that my sentiment would stamp exactly where I wanted it. 

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the `cue card`means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.

Love your about-to-be-a prince froggy! And you summed up exactly my feelings on CAS - I usually feel like the card needs a frame - and that's why one-layer is hard for me! lol!

Eeek he's SO cute Tracey! I like his teeny crown!!

Joyce said...

This is just so cute. I love your little frog. He looks like he is staring right at me, looking for a pat on his head. I think it's so funny that we both chose exactly the same focal image, right down to the googlie eyes.
