harshest climate…

Another guest designing honor has been bestowed on me by Time Out Challenges.
This challenge is sponsored by CAS-ual Friday Stamps.
The winner will get $25.00 worth of product and will be asked to Guest Design in a future challenge (That’s why I am here today).
What fun to find an idea that isn’t all puppies and kittens!
The base card is white card stock that I stamped the with the sentiment from Winnie & Walter ”Kindness with Evlin T Designs” set using VersaFine onyx black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I stenciled the leaves from Newton’s Nook Designs 
over and over, turning the stencil and using different Distress green inks.
This I layered onto a strip of black card stock and then on the base card above the sentiment.
With a bit heavier white card stock I punched out three frogs with a very old punch, unknown company.
These I decorated with Distress markers to loo like Red-eyed tree frogs that are found in the rainforests, which would be one climate I would hopefully never have to live in.
Even though the frogs are not poisonous I wouldn’t want to be walking along and have one or more drop on me.
I applied the frogs with glue dots.

How about joining us for a kindness challenge?

Love the beautiful inspiration and your take on the challenge, Arlene. That sentiment is so apt for the challenge. I love how you created the rainforest look with overlapping stencils and those frogs are the cutest. So glad to have you join us at Time out as guest. Sending you lots of love ~ Ishani

A stunning card Arlene - love that you have created a 'jungle' background with your stencilling, and kept the jungle theme with the frogs... no, I wouldn't appreciate having frogs drop onto me either :)

I love the depth you created with the foliage on the background. So pretty!

I love this card, Arlene. And as I look at it, I think of the amazing job you did with my mixing up the 2 challenges, and the way you combined them! This card makes me smile because of that, and because it is just wonderful! Thanks so much for Guest Designing with us at Time Out!
