Everything Is Going To Be Okay


It's Anja here. This social distancing is getting harder and harder every day. That's why I wanted to make a card with a positive sentiment. And these cute frogs seemed as a good idea.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Spring Frogs),
- Distress Inks,
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts.
- bristol paper for background (14,5x14,5 cm)
- white pen,
- black pigment ink,
- pencil,
- rubber,
- water spritzer,
- plastic stencil (clouds),
- printer,
- trimmer,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the frogs and all the other die parts.

Then I started on the background. I used a pencil to sketch the borders for coloring.

First I colored the water. I used a rubber to erase the sketch marks.

Next I spritzed a few water drops over the colored water and let it dry. After that I made the sky using a plastic stencil.

Last I colored the right bottom corner to make it look like a piece of grass on the shore.

When I had everything colored I printed and trimmed the sentiment and assembled the card together.

This is all from me for today. Stay safe.
