Good Monday Morning

Well, Monday's aren't usually good for me but I am trying to be positive!


I tried something new on this Whipper Snapper cutie, Eli and Frogger, I tried to get a glowing halo of color around the image using my Copic markers. I thought if I used yellow and then just softened with my Colorless Blender it would work sort of like it does when I use colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Well...it didn't work out exactly like I had envisioned, yet I tried it again on another image (which you'll get to see tomorrow!) with similar results. I don't hate it, just don't like it so much. The fly paper is from K & Company and has adorable frogs on the other side. The ribbon is from PTI and the cardstock is a mix of Bazzill and PTI. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker and goes with a bunch of frog images I have from them.
Have a great day!
