Hello everyone and welcome to the Calendar Girls'
~~* Who are the Calendar Girls? *~~
If You are a new reader to my blog you may want to read here first :
My dahlin stamping friend Terry (known as Terry0926 on SCS) was the awesome hostess for the month of April and she challenged the rest of us with the following (in her own words) :I have 2 requirements for you:
1. Use an image with a duck, a puddle, an umbrella or anything resembling rain or water!
2. Use a fun technique on your card that is “water” related!
Here are some fun techniques for you to think about:
• Gel (water) Card
• Misting with Markers
• Waterfall Card
• Wiper Card
• Wet Paper Watercoloring
• Watercolor your image with pencils and an aqua painter
• Use Crystal Effects
• Emboss acetate
There are so many things out there that can look like water…..use your imagination and have fun!"
"My challenge to you is to show me your April showers!
Well, I chose to show 'water' ,so I dusted off an old SU set that my DD left at my house a long time ago, and decided to ink it myself for this fun project. I love this funny frog and wanted to make it stand out. The watercolor tecnique is the one I chose to do as I haven't use it in such a long time, therefore I am a bit out of practice. Crystal effect was also added to the frog's eyes, the lil dragonflys and the flower for that clear shiny finish.
