Guest Designer - The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge #3

Hi, everyone!  It's the last day of May and I'm squeezing in one final card as Guest Designer at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge this month.  Our sponsor for May is Gerda Steiner Designs, and it has been a joy to feature her cute images on my cards all month.  

Our challenge is to use grey as a mandatory colour and add two other colours from the photo, plus the twist of "add your own."  You decide what you want to add for the twist.  Just let us know the colours you chose and what you added for the twist.  I hope you'll join us!  Our challenge starts today and you have two weeks to play along.

For my card I used the mandatory colour of grey, and my two other colours are green and pink.  The "add your own" twist that I chose is die-cuts.  

This adorable image from Gerda Steiner Designs is Frog with Heart.  I've had this digital image for several years, and it appears to be retired now.  I coloured it with markers, added spots to the frog with a darker green marker and white accents with a paint pen and then fussy-cut.  I used a wonky stitched frame die-cut (Reverse Confetti) as well as Impression Obsession Heron on Lake die.  I trimmed off the heron and so I could use that space for the frog.

I started with the background by ink-blending Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide on watercolour paper and spritzing some water.  I die-cut the lake scene from green cardstock and then added additional green shading with the same marker as the frog's spots.  The frog is adhered with foam tape, as is the wonky stitched frame. Lastly I stamped the sentiment (Stampendous).

Thank you to The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge for having me as your Guest Deisigner this month - I had fun!
