Hugs for the Color Throwdown


Edited to add:  The name of the frog stamp is Roses for You, it's a Lelo Design by Stampavie.  An internet search did not turn up anything under Lelo designs, so might be no longer available. But at least I found it!!

Welcome to today’s Color Throwdown.  This lovely color combo is brought to us today from our lovely hostess Lynn Put.

This image is…well, I can’t remember.  Somebody please tell me who makes this stamp!!  I bought it a few years ago and I don’t think I’ve ever used it.  I had it stamped a few times and I came across the stamped image last week and decided to color it up for today’s challenge.  He’s so cute, even though my green might have veered a bit off the original color.  It started more Celery, but as I kept shading it, it kept getting darker and more saturated.

I used Copic markers for the image and shaded around it with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  The shading is pink and it looks just fine irl, but for some reason I couldn’t get it to show up on the photo, but it’s there.  You can see the darker shading under the image also done with Prismacolor pencils.

The papers are scraps from my stash.  I know the green with the flowers is an Imaginisce piece from last Easter.  The border I made with a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die.  The two large flowers are from Recollections and the small one I made with a die-namics from MFT.   The hugs sentiment is from the Tiny Flowers and Tags set from Flourishes and I used a McGill tag punch with it.   I keep looking at it and I think I’d like to sparkle it up so that might be in it’s future as well.

The CTD ladies have an eyeful this week so make sure you check each of them out!
