The Crafty Purple Frog


Thanks to a blogging friend I have now got addicted to Sweet Pea Stamps and recently came across The Crafty Purple Frog who has been given the license to turn Ching-cou Kuik's wonderful images into decoupage/pyromage.  Click here to have a look.  I chose this image to use as it was bright and cheery because of the sunflowers.  I have used two different Basic Grey backing papers - the pink has been distressed around the edges with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks and the yellow pieces have been torn (oh I so love doing this) and I have punched the edge of one but then both pieces have again been distressed with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.  I have used the Crafty Purple Frog Sunflower Mermaid pyromage this time which is so beautiful.  The card is finished off with some tags from my stash, three little baby sunflowers and of course some card candy.

This card fits the following challenges:
