CSS Blog Hop!


It's another CSS blog hop, and this round we're playing Gina's color spotlight challenge.

You should have arrived here from Cheri's!  I'm sure she had something amazing to share with you!  If you have arrived from elsewhere, be sure to visit the Stamp TV forum to go back to the beginning, because you don't wanna miss any of the inspiration we're sharing!

Each Friday, Gina shares a color spotlight on Stamp TV.  Here are this week's colors.


Maybe it was because we watched the Princess and the Frog not so long ago that I thought of this particular stamp set when I saw these colors!  I love this movie, even though the voo-doo man and his evil companions are quite dark and scary.  My favorite scene is the one with a forest sky glowing by the light of the fireflies!  It is gorgeous!  The music is fabulous, the artwork is wonderful, and in the end, good triumphs over evil.

I stamped this frog prince with Memento ink, colored him with Copic markers, cut/embossed the panel with a circle nestabilities die and softly sponged the edges with tea-dye distress ink.  You can barely tell from this photo that the mushroom cap was stamped again and adhered on foam dots to add some dimension to the focal image.  It provides the "sand" component of my card, along with the Basic Grey Pyrus designer paper.

When I know it's a guy card, I deliberately try to go minimal on embellishments, although here I couldn't resist adding a punched designer paper heart and some rhinestones (colored with Copics) to draw the eye toward this funny sentiment.  That Bobunny blossom sure looks like a big lotus flower!
