Happy Friday

Hello.  Welcome.  It's sunny, it's warm, it's Friday.  Who could ask for more.  Over at Unity it's also Friends With Flair day.  Here's a little something.  Kinda like something I made previously.  But different in it's own special way. 

I made this background at the same time as I made THIS ONE, so look there if you want the step by step.  I stamped Unity Stamp Co There Was a boy onto white tissue paper and coloured him.  If you are doing this technique use white tissue, it keeps the colours clean, and you want the thin stuff without a wax coating.  Then I added a frog from a serviette and the little girl from Unity's First Love set.

Here's the finished framed piece.  I generated the sentiment on the computer and I have also gone along the lines of the frog with a thin black pen to give him more definition and make him look a bit more like a stamp.

  1. Lovely project. Thanks for the instructions on how you did it. The piece looks wonderful framed.

  2. Wonderful piece, Gail!!! Loved the previous one, too, but this one is really cute with the girl kissing the frog. Perfect. I still haven't tried stamping on tissue. But now that I am doing a little art journal projects I will have to do that. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  7. Somehow, I missed the first piece, so glad that you referrenced it, Gail! I really do appreciate the humor more in this one, perhaps because it is so well illustrated with the little girl and frog! Made me smile! Great backgrounds on both projects. I am going to have to try this.
