I have to admit that I did an online search to see how differently frogs can be colored..
I didn't just want an all green one. So, this is what I came up with.
The leaves have been embossed for texture... what fun.. cause it doesn't really
matter what embossing folder you use.. any texture would look great, then I
crinkled them a bit on the ends.
I use prisma pencils for coloring and blend with an odorless turpentine using
paper stubbies.
I thought the starburst was the perfect hint of Sunset look..
Hope you Check out Dolce Stamps and Cards Store for more great
Local King Stamps, you will love them.

OMG, this little guy just sent me over the edge when I saw him at the Dolce store. Can't say that I have an affinity for frogs, but this little guy is a total keeper. Awesome job, girlfriend!
