I left a comment on the other posting of this project but I wanted to say on this posting of it, that I didn't realize you had done the resist technique----I guess I read over that section and I know the cute flies/bee stamp did distract me. lol! I do think the resist you did for the BG looks really good---I honestly thought it was PP!
I don't think that this card looks sloppy--- It is so cute and it just has a fun feel to it!
LOL! Left you a comment on the blog-linked upload, but worth repeating. This is great!
About the fussy cut... I cut my CF before heating--most times. The shrinking helps even out irregularities. Glad the oven-method worked for you--very daring of you!
Cute card! I like the soft look of the wax paper resist and the cute frog. TFS. Daria
Very cute! your bg turned out nicely, very subtle. I like the embossing on the card body too.
Very creative use of such fun techniques! Great Card!
This is very clever! I like your little frog and the surrounding elements. Your background looks nice. I have also had trouble cutting out my craftfoam which is part of the reason mine isn't done yet. Good job!

This is for Daniel's Craftfoam and LeighAnn's Wax Paper Resist challenges.
I started with green CF and rubbed light green ink (the same as the BG) over it, to change the colour slightly. Then I stamped the frog with black dye ink and put it in the oven for 5 min. It dried and shrunk a bit. I fussy cut it.
For the light green BG I crumpled wax paper and then did the ironing technique, using a make-up pad to rub light green ink on it. I liked the result!
Overall the card looks a bit sloppy. I like the concept but not the execution. I had a lot of trouble fussy cutting the frog - I just couldn't get it to look neat!
I'm going to give this to my MIL cause she loves green and frogs!
