Halli Hallo! - Hello!

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and Gerda Steiner has released the fabulous new Frogs stamp set with EnglishSpanish and German sentiments and over the next three weeks I will show you my creations with the Gerda Steiner Designs German Froesche set. This colorful lake scene is my third creation:

  • color one of the frogs and two flies from the Gerda Steiner Designs Frogs set with Alcohol Markers - add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
  • add highlights to the eyes and some freckles to the cheeks with a white gel pen
  • add shimmer to the wings of the flies with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • stamp some fish and some reed from the Gerda Steiner Designs Lucky Duck set into the background - use masking fluid to mask them
  • add color to the background with the Derwent Inktense Paint Pan Set and a watercolor brush
  • remove the masking and color those images with the Derwent Inktense Paint Pan Set as well
  • adhere  the sentiment strip with double-sided foam adhesive
  • before gluing the panel down onto the cardbase add a strip of green cardstock and of striped patterned paper to the left side


Have a colorful day.

Hugs,
