We didn't color this guy during the class, but I like to transfer what I learn to another image to make sure I remember the concepts. We learned a lot about texture and, what I really wanted to learn - how to create those eyes! This little toad is set afloat in the water on a mini wobbler (see video). I kept the water very simple to keep the focus on the toad. The shore line is green cs cut with a grassy border die and colored with Copics. The lily pads are scalloped circle die cuts just trimmed a little, scored, and colored. The lily is three layers of flowers with a little Copic coloring in the centers to add depth.
Here's the riveting video showing all the action:

Toads are only floating leisurely in the water around Wisconsin in the summer, so this card is going to go play at the following challenges:
