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!


  1. Well at least you got these cards made even if they didn't make the challenge. Cute frog and papers on your first cards and the second one is a fabulous sentiment with a fun background. Have a good day.

  2. Big, bold, and beautiful! Love the bright colors on all these cards :)
