Ribbit - He's Back!

I dusted off my neglected Frog Pond stamp from Lasting Impressions with Panache and used the Reinker Watercolor Technique from the February Technique Junkie Newsletter to create my background.  This technique is perfect for adding backgrounds to line art images.  I did find that the Reinker spread nicer when the Watercolor Paper was misted prior to adding the Reinkers; this technique also works wonderfully on Matte Coated card stock.

Speaking of colorful backgrounds, I can't wait to ink up my new Gelli Arts Plate, it will be perfect for creating similar colorful backgrounds!  I packed it in my bag (along with a number of things) for my creative day with Sue, hopefully I'll get more than just one project done during our visit!

Details:
Stamps - Lasting Impressions with Panache Frog Pond
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Distress Ink Gathered Twigs; Reinkers Celery, Brilliant Blue, Teal
Card Stock - Watercolor, Black, Teal, Celery
Other - Spritz Bottle, Non Stick Craft Sheet, Acrylic Block, Sponge Dauber

Enjoy your day!
