Here’s the Toad

Now this makes sense! You can add, "You're unfrogettable" when there are actual frogs on the image! This card is a rather unusual size. Mostly because I started with watercolor paper, stamped a picture and painted it. Then I decided to make it a card. I don't remember the dimensions, but I believe it is too big for a large standard square envelope. Eventually I'll have to make an envelope for it and pay extra to have it mailed, if I decide to send it…

I stamped the frog sitting on the mushroom, then masked the frog, stamped the toadstool under him and painted the picture using reinkers with an aquapainter – my favorite coloring method. I was a little off when I stamped the mushroom and so my toad is off balance. I should have used a stamp-a-ma-jig! I finished the main image with a hand-drawn border using a black 05 ZIG millennium pen.
