These Boots Were Made for Splashing!

Today I have an MFTeaser for you using one of the sets being released at midnight EST on Wednesday, June 17th!

This set is called Rainy Day Friends and is by My Favorite Things!

Isn't the little frog a cutie?  If you look at her raincoat, you'll see that it has frog eyes on the hood. :)  I colored the frog with BG72 Copic and then used a colorless blender to create some subtles spots all over.  Then, I finished it off with some white gel pen spots on her head.  The girl image was colored with Copic markers and paper pieced.  She is cut out and pieced over the cloud paper.  The frog is also cut out and is perched on the sidewalk which was drawn by hand using a black marker and ruler.  May we have a moment of silence for my W1 Copic marker?  It dried out right as I was finishing this card.  I am sad and need a refill STAT!  I use W1 a LOT! 
For her raincoat, I used some 3mm hot fix crystals available at MFT HERE.  The pack I used is great because it has 3 different sizes of CLEAR crystals, which is what I use the very most!  :)  Her jacket was paper pieced using patterned paper from SU.  The sentiment was stamped on red card stock and then cut out with my Nestabilities.  I added some crazy stitching with my Janome sew mini and covered up a wonky corner with the largish brads from SU.  :)  I didn't HAVE to tell you that ya' know?  LOL
