So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Celebrating Frog

Hi Everyone,
 today I have a card for you, using my So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps.
The sentiment is perfect for the current Time Out challenge - I think they got their theme from them..... I couldn't resist to play along.

I used one of my favorite frogs (the celebrating frog) - he normally wears a party hat, but I masked it away. Challenged myself at no line coloring - still no better at it. LOL, I guess doing it once a year is not enough practice....
I used a combination of Inktense pencils and Stabilo markers. In the end I added white gel pen accents. Also added a thin strip of Washi tape for more interest.

If you are wondering who inspired me - it was Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin with THIS card. Please don't compare our coloring - she is a master and I am a bloody beginner......

Happy no line water coloring!

I think you've practiced enough. Took a very close look at this little inebriated guy and he looks perfectly colored to me so you can add no-line coloring to you expansive list of talents. That sentiment is absolutely perfect for all these challenges but especially Time Out's. It's got my vote, anyway.

oh I think it looks fab, love the background colour and wow to the colouring! and that line of washi the perfect finishing touch-so where did you actually get the sentiment...did you hand write it?
Fab to see you at Time Out x

Great that you used the sentiment on your card! The frog looks great, but I can understand your frustration about the no-line colouring... I try it more than oince a year, but am never stisfied with what I see...it takes a lot of practice...and there are so many fun techniques :) Great to see your work at the gallery at time out again! Thanks for joining!

Hahahahaha ... what a riot, Cornelia! I'm amazed you have the actual quote that matches our theme ... and to pair it with this tipsy frog was a genius idea! This is just so much fun ... your colouring looks great to me ... and the green-ness is delicious! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
