* Vera Lane Studio: Froggy Went a Courtin'


This month in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group we have an ATC swap. The theme is 'Off With Their Heads' and we are to take the head of one digi and add it to the body of a second digi. This is sooo much fun and there are hundreds of new characters to make.

Here is what I made:

I used the frog from Kiss The Frog and the body of one of the quirky Real Men. I coloured the images with Copic markers, added some Posca white paint pen highlights, some Glossy Accents to the frog's eyes and glitter to his crown. 
The background is made from Distress Oxides in Peeled Paint, Broken China and Fossilised Amber. I added some text stamping with Fossilised Amber DO and inked the edges with Black Soot DO and Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. Some black lace trim was adhered at the base of the ATC and green Baker's Twine. The frog was popped on foam pads for dimension and I typed the sentiment using Vera Lane Studio Baby Powder font, printed it out, cut it into strips and inked the edges. It is glued directly onto the background. Finally some jewel trim was added.
