While I was browsing around blog land, I saw a card that I thought was so brilliant for a leap day card, that I cased the idea if not the actual card. The card that inspired me is linked here. Thanks for the inspiration!
I had purchased the Gerda Steiner Frogs a while ago because they are so cute. One image in particular was perfect for leap day.
The image was colored with copics onto the card base. The base was prepared with a computed printed sentiment (yay my printer actually printed on 110lb cardstock) and some inking to provide some grounding. After coloring the frog, I added some tall marsh grasses from a Stampin p set called Wetlands.
I'll be entering this card at Watercooler Wednesday - Occaisions, and Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday.
Thanks for visiting!
Yes the adorable and happy frog is perfect for the Leap Year sentiment and card x. His eyes and face sure made me smile x.
Cute, cute, cute! We only get the opportunity to "leap year" every four years so your card idea is brilliant. We are so pleased that you joined us this week at Watercooler Wednesday. Karen - DT

Fun card Cat. Lovely colouring on your happy frog. Thanks for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Tristan DT.
Ack, this is adorable! I've been looking at this set, but figure I should use my other 5 NBUS Gerda Steiner sets first. I haven't been making much progress lately. I love the simplicity of this. Your coloring is awesome and the reeds are a great addition. Amazing that your printer pulled the 110 lb paper!
Beautiful coloring, Cat--cute card!
