This week's challenge on the DRS Designs blog is "Plaids." Oh, what fun I had creating this cute "Toad" card for it!! (or is it a frog because I've colored it green? LOL!) I recently received the Large Original Plaid (641P) stamp and I'm really enjoying making my own backgrounds and plaid patterns with it. (For another example, please see my Stacked Love Valentine HERE.)
The plaid seen here was created by stamping the Large Original Plaid stamp in both, the vertical and horizontal directions. I stamped it one way with dark green ink and then for the other way I used a light green ink. The Singing Frog (138H) was colored with Copic Markers, masked, cut out with an oval Nestability using the Out-of-the-box technique, and then sponged while it was still in the die. I've also created the polka dot background here using Versamark ink and the Polka Dot Background stamp (688P). It matches that polka-dotted frog pretty well, doesn't it? I got creative with the sentiment and split up the "Toad"ally Wonderful Day Greeting (455E) in to 3 parts to fit my layout. Finished card size is 4.25" x 5.5."
