Miss you

Over at there is a new challenge up: One layer and add an animal.

This card came about quickly.. I love it when that happens.. this frog looks so sad.. 
a little BLUE-ish green you might say. I stamped him embossing INK and used a dark green powder. 
I inked him in distress ink Peacock feathers, Wild Honey and cracked pistachio. I wanted his belly to be more yellow and I love how peacock feathers and pistachio create this beautiful green together. I kept it at an angle to try and make it look kinda like a hill he was sitting on. 

                       I stamped the sentiment in memento Tuxedo black in.

 I then got out a background stamp (canvas) and inked it up in embossing ink and  clear embossed to give it some texture but to keep it clean and simple.

I want to link up my card to the Less is more challenge

I was encouraged to link this card up to

Hop(e) you
