ODBD Challenge at OWH

One of my New Year's goals was to participate in every ODBD challenge over at Operation Write Home and I missed the February challenge already!  The sad thing is, I had my card ready and just didn't get it posted in time.
Today I'll catchup on the February and March challenges.  I made frogs for the Animals challenge; both a his and hers version:

These cards are in my comfort zone - papers, layering and die cuts.  I've been seeing so many technique videos that I want to try too and one of them is the Bokeh technique from Splitcoast stampers. I used watercolors in the background and then layered Colorbox white pigment ink on top for the background.  I used a My Favorite Things stamp for the March challenge, which is Sentiments :
And that ribbon technique?  Why, it's by Sandy Allnock from her days as a Ribbonista here: May-Arts.  I use that technique often.
Thanks for stopping by!
