Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I stamped an all-over random background, completely forgetting that this sort of eliminates white space. Duh. My beloved white space, where are you? Teeny, tiny lily, how overshadowed by hoppy toads you are! I'm sorry, darling. You are beautiful and deserve to shine.
It may be hard to tell in the photo, but I used four different shades of blue/green and then the lime. Was I on drugs? No. But I think I lost myself somewhere along the way, perhaps when I added the emerald-inked frogs, but maybe sooner than that.
When I finished, I kept staring at this busy, busy card, blinking my watering eyes hard. Maybe it's not so bad, I thought.
Then I found myself again and made this:
These froggies can BREATHE! I'm going to make a whole set of this three-frog cards in different colors: one color per card. Who knows? Maybe I'll draw a box around them. But probably not. Less is more. Right? Let's hope (or should I say HOP) I learned my lesson.
And now it's time for true confessions. I've had this set almost since it was released, oh, FOREVER ago, and it wasn't until I made these cards last week that it dawned on me that the tiny three-dot stamp in the set FITS IN THE THREE DOTS ON THE FROG!!!! Because I am an idiot.
