Hi everyone :-D
Today it´s my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Monochrome Froggie CAS Card.
I used super cute image 'Kiss Me Froggie' from 2013 Good Luck Froggies Release. Yes, froggie again! I can't help myself, but I love the whole collection and want to make something with all of them. :-D
"Frogs are symbols of prosperity, wealth, friendship, and abundance in many cultures. In other cultures they symbolize fertility. In the Native American culture of the Southwestern United States, the frog carries a piece of wood in its mouth because the Mojave people believe frogs brought fire to humans. For the ancient Romans, the frog was believed to bring good luck to one's home. Native Aborigines of Australia believe that frogs brought the thunder and rain. Frogs are said to be effective in speeding up recovery from disease. Among the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, frogs symbolized inspiration and fertility. In ancient Egypt, Hekt, the frog goddess, protected newborn babies, hence frogs were symbols of fertility and birth. The frog is also said to attract true friends and to help find long-lasting love."
Details about my card...
Image is paper pieced.
I printed two froggies on a white cardstock paper, one on the white panel and second on a small piece. I colored the image printed on the piece of cardstock paper with colored pencils, blended colors with paper blending stump and baby oil, fussy cut it, colored edges with black permanent pen and glued it over the second image (image printed on white panel).
