Froggy Christmas...

Hello everyone!
Saturday is 52CCT day and I'm here today with our new challenge.
This week we play with a sketch.

I got some new stamps this week, and I couldn't resist using one for this challenge...

I've wanted those frogs (Katzelkraft) for a long time, and finally they arrived - and not just them!
...but shhh, I'll show you that some other day! 

I started by cutting out a star, to make a stencil. I used this stencil and another one with holes to mark the star on the card. I drew all lines with a thin black marker - some lines with a grey alcohol marker to indicate shadows and to give depth. I sponged the inside of the star with Distress inks and added a few splashes of white ink, still using the stencil. Then I used the cut-out star as a mask and added some black splashes.  
Now comes the frog! 
I stamped it, colored it with alcohol markers, fussy-cut it and slightly embossed it's belly, under which I then glued some adhesive foam, to keep the bulge. I also stamped some accessories, such as Santa's hat, candy cane and fir tree - and yes, the frog's eyes as well, because I didn't like his! I added some Wink of Stella to the frog and glued it, as well as the accessories onto the card. I stamped the word "toadily" along the edge of the star and wrote the rest by hand, trying to make it look as close as possible.
I heat-embossed the word Christmas on a black strip and glued it under the frog. Then I glued a narrow strip of washi tape on the edge of a card base, stuck the card with the frog next to it and cut off everything that was sticking out. As a final touch I added three enamel dots. 

Hope you like it!
Have Fun!!
