Still in my amphibian rut, but a little brighter color palette. :) I have to wait till Christmas for my Snap Stamps (Hoppy Anniversary) and my CHF Paisley background, but I like how this turned out anyway. I had some dark grosgrain ribbon across the top after playing with a couple other ribbons, but it just was too heavy, so I went with this combo scrappy thingy. This is a Penny Black image from my IRAK file - I realize it's a little wider than the sketch, but after I colored it I couldn't bear to cut off that reflection in the water. I used Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil, so the effect of the white horizontal lines (gel pen) didn't really 'work' for me, but you can sort of see them. The stripey paper is a free download from oscraps.com. Background stamp is from myheartstamps4u.com.
