Sometimes You're the Frog


These are some of the new stamps I just had arrive from Starving Artistamps. I sure never thought I'd have a stamp of a fly but when I saw the sentiment "Sometimes you're the frog, Sometimes you're the fly" I knew I had to have the frog and the fly along with that sentiment! This is stamped on the inside of the card (not pictured) because the sentiment was too long for me to work into this SCS Sketch Challenge layout.

I stamped this frog on water color paper with black stazon and then used my aqua painter and Celery ink to color him in. I filled his eyes with some greenish stickles and then cut a little slit in his mouth for the fly. The flys were stamped on vellum and then I added detail to their wings with a black journaling pen. I added a little touch of the spica clear glitter pen to their wings. It's not easy to make a fly look good!

Totally love the froggy eating the fly. Very creative. Now I just have to figure out if I'm the frog today or the fly.
