Wednesday, March 11th - MichelleO

Hello High Hopes Fans
You can find the February Monthly Challenge here
The challenge runs through Tuesday, March 31st. 

This "Froggy Gift" paired up with a great sentiment - "Have I toad you?"

 Really loved doing this one - the paper colors the image and flowers! To create a background I stamped The boy then masked him off so I could stamp the stamp "Cattails" on either side of him. I colored with my Copics and then found bold color papers with Simple Stories. I sewed down all the layers - I created a band across the middle with paper and Martha Stewart Emroidery Doily Border punch. My favorite punch. I also pulled out some red mulberry roses with MS leaf punch -

Here are my Copic colors used -

Hope you enjoyed!
