Black Friday Frog at Inky Stamper!

Hello friends!  Hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with grateful hearts and full tummies!  Today is another tradition after Thanksgiving which is the “Black Friday” deals!  So I wanted to share something fun with you today and I strongly encourage you to head on over to the Inky Stamper Store to see all of the wonderful Black Friday deals that are going on!

So click on the badge above to be taken to the store to shop and don’t forget these special codes at checkout for free shipping and the “FREEFREDDY” when you spend $30 or more!  And if you like the coordinating die to cut out Freddy, then you can purchase the die for only $5!  In honor of Black Friday, I have some inspiration using this NEW Freddy Solo:

And of course what’s better than a good “Black Friday” deal than a black frog to go with it?!!  It was proposed to have Freddy Solo the Frog colored up in black, so I took on the challenge and made a fun monochromatic card with him.  I think he turned out cute!

I found a sketch (linked in challenges below post) and used that for inspiration in creating my card with him.  I’ve used several different patterns for my papers from the Doodlebug Buffalo Check/Woodgrain and Gingham/Linen paper pads which are also sold in the store as well. I’ve used some for the card front panel that was layered onto an A2 black top folding card base.  I’ve layered some silver foil papers with the pattern papers for the image panel that was lightly sponged with black ink.  I wrapped some silver cord around the image panel, white heat embossed the sentiment with Freddy over a piece of the pattern paper, popped up Freddy with foam squares and finished off the design with some Picket Fence Day and Night Gems. (click on the links to be taken to these products in the Inky Stamper store.)

Here’s a closer look at the Black Friday Freddy and how I’ve colored him up using Copic markers in the cool grey tones.  I’ve also added a highlight on his eyeballs with a white gel pen and then I emphasized the “dots” on him with a black gel pen.  You can see it looks a tad bit shinny and raised on the dots.

Really hope you’ve enjoyed my Black Friday card today and are able to take advantage of the fun deals this weekend!  So hop hop hop on over there and shop!  Have a great weekend and I’ll see you soon!
