A Frog and a Rock (On) !

First a reminder to check out my blog candy here. You can enter to win until 10/7.

The - No No No Put it down - limited supplies challenge over at Split Coast was to use only paper, punches, markers, pens, ink on your card - (no embellishments other than paper!)

This is also for Heather's Saturday sketch and color challenge on her H&M blog - you can join in on it here and she is offering a discount to one winner - so go on over and check it out - and post your sketch or color challenge card there! I used my cuttlebug, circle punches, key tag punch, corner rounder punch and hole punch for the faux brads in the corner.I used Prismacolor markers to color my cute little frog. He is part of the H&M Stamp set called Dreaming of Princess Land.

Stamps: Dreaming of Princess Land: H&M Stamps
Paper: white: PTI, close to cocoa, real red: SU, DP - Basic grey Figgy Pudding
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, certainly celery: SU
Accessories: key tag punch, corner rounder punch, cuttlebug, Mesh Folder, hole punch

For my next card - Stef gave us fun shirts for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast - I chose this grey and blue robot shirt design:
Instead of robots - I used Rock music images from a fun new set by H&M stamps appropriately called Rock On! I dry embossed the grey card stock background with my Cuttlebug and added this shimmery blue rick rack ribbon that I've had for ages (and finally used on something!) All the images are up on foam dimensionals. I used silver ice stickles for even more shimmer on parts of the images.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Wow! Both of these cards are awesome! I love the frog image, and I never think of using grey. You did an outstanding job combining the blue color with the grey, it really is striking together! Best, Curt
