Lavinia Stamps "Bogart the Frog" Card

This is an "I can't sleep make" from the early hours, playing with another recently released stamp by Lavinia Stamps, called "Bogart" who is a cute little frog surfacing on the water.

For the background colour, I started out using the Lavinia Elements Inks in Sahara, Lime Punch, Pine and Mermaid, applied with their stencil brushes.  I then splattered water droplets from a fan paint brush to get the mottled look.

I then stamped "Bogart the frog" using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

For the foliage in the foreground, I used three shades of Versafine Clair:  Green Oasis with the "Willow" stamp, Medieval Blue with the "Meadow Grass" stamp and Nocturne with the "Fern Heads" stamps.

I added extra colour to the background and to Bogart, using my Derwent Inktense pencils.  I also used Posca Pens and Gel Roll pens for extra colour too.
