'Green Line' for Less Is More

This week's colour Challenge over at Less Is More is to use three greens on your entry - either three shades of the same green or three different greens. This little idea 'hopped' into my head:
Yikes, what a job I had to match the right hand frog to the backing card and the sentiment so I just had three greens - almost every Pro Marker in green was tried out until I found the right one!

I used:

- 6" x 6" white card stock

- green backing card from the snippets folder 

- Penny Black 'Green Line' frogs stamped image, coloured with Pro Markers in 'Lime Zest', 'Moss' and 'Olive Green' - I also coloured the poor little insect in 'Tulip Yellow' - along with the frogs' eyes, I hope a touch of yellow doesn't eliminate me from the challenge :)

- sentiment is from the Hero Arts 'Live Life' set

I did have such fun doing this card, almost as if the frog is changing colour and 'psyching' himself up! It's yet another one of those Penny Black images that do make you smile, and I like to think the insect managed to escape :)

  1. Fab card Di, love the idea of morphing frogs lol. I have started to use my copics to colour white card when I can't find a match and that seems like a lot lately.

  2. It looks fab Di, you could always just edge a piece of card with the same Promarker that you use to colour the image. If you use the chisel end of the marker, you can drag it along the edges of the card and hey presto ... a perfectly matching mount.
    This frog does make me smile!
    Thanks so much

  5. So funny - I've used the Pro Marker trick on here just recently and totally forgot! Although, I did have the stamped sentiment's darkest green to match to as well :( Suppose I could have coloured the third frog with ink pad :)

  6. Those frogs are so cute Di. I must remember the tip about edging card. I've faced the same problem with my copic markers. I actually did my first ever less is more card this week, and i really enjoyed it. Kate x

  8. Gorgeous! I love that stamp and in three shades of green it looks perfect! The border and sentiment look fine to me, but the solution would be more stash - perfect excuse to go shopping I think!

  21. This card brings to mind the time a huge frog came to visit our lounge one summer night, just hopped right in and made himself at home, mind you none of us were brave enough to pick him up and gently remove him so we had to guide him out with a couple of magazines and a rather loud indignant croak from him. Great card, love the sentiment. Take care, Lyn x
