SC222 - You're on my Mind

Today's card is for the sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers which is a good sketch but I had a hard time tilting this image since I'm such a squared off everything lined up kind of person. I pulled out an old favorite stamp set of mine Unfrogettable which has been retired for quite some time but I still love using it cause its such a fun set. I ended up making this card into a spinner card so that the dragonfly would spin above the heads of the frogs when the card is tilted. I used my aqua brush to watercolor the images and then added Crystal Effects to all of their eyes to make them look wet.

Supplies: Unfrogettable, Upsy Daisy, Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder, Aqua brush, Crystal Effects, Ribbon, Piercer w/mat, Circle punches, Pop dots, Pennies. Colors: Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, More Mustard, Bashful Blue, Whisper White.

I like how you took that simple sketch and made it fabulous with the spinner detail. How fun these froggies are lines up on this bright and colorful paper.

You know my spinner cards always looked like the dog chewed them up and then nothing would slide and spin. Yikes. I need to work on that I guess. This is incredibly adorable. Love your blog as always. Have a terrific night.

This is SO cute! I wasn't even going to attempt this weeks sketch because of the tilted image. Maybe I should rethink. :)

That is SO cute! I recently made a spinner card and now you've inspired me to pull out all my buggy sets and make a few more fun cards - TFS!

Oh this is cool, I've never made one of these. I like the spots you added to 2 of the frogs, nice coloring! I've been wanting to use this set (mushroom, etc) with my gorjuss girls, will have to go find it.
