DT CALL - SUNDAYS WITH CHRISSY


I'm not going to apologise for being so keen - I have half a dozen favourite artists and Chrissy Armstrong is definitely on my list!  I am usually more interested in colouring figures, cute children etc but I have found myself drawn to her animals too.  They are just so easy to use for so many occasions being cute but not overly so!



Today I have chosen to use BEACH BABY JAYME.  I just love this frog and don't you get the impression she does too!  Nearly forgot to mention this stamp is from her digi range.




Techniques:

Have to admit to finding the frogs face the hardest to colour - wanted to keep the expression in the face without over colouring and going too dark and losing that fun pose!


Medium:
Copics and Promarkers
Prisma and Polychromo pencils
A couple of stickles glitter glue
White gel pen

Papers:
Pattern - various paper packs
Dark Green pattern and plain - Crafters Companion
Gold - Create and Craft
Dies used:
All dies used were from Spellbinders
except the Butterfly which was a
Marianne die
Embellishments:
Clear gems
Transfers - for sentiment
Best wishes,
Challenges I'm entering this into
