The Princess Frog

In celebration of Mardi Gras next week, 7 Kids College Fund wants to see 
~ PurpleGold and Green  ~

My daughter has Disney's movie, The Princess and the Frog which is set in New Orleans on an almost constant repeat here in our house.  So when I saw this this challenge I knew right away that Fairytale Tilda would be the perfect image choice.  I've only slightly cheated because the only gold on my card is the little frogs crown and her golden blonde hair. 

Not being a fan of purple, I found myself having so much fun coloring this image.  And the coloring went reasonably fast (for me).  I've painted Pixie Dust, Shimmerz on her wings and used Lavender, Gold, and Frosted Lace Stickles for even more sparkle.  I rarely if ever complete the inside of a card but wanted to use Big Prince Phillip too. And I thought stamping him with Peeled Paint distressing ink would be a nice finishing touch.  The sentiment is a digital from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I wanted my sentiment printed in green as well, but I don't know how to change the color on a digital image.
 (If you know, would you please share how to do it with me?)

Your daughter has such good taste Wendy! The Princess and the Frog is my FAVORITE Disney movie!! I too could watch it again and again. I even love the music in it. I love it so much that my girls are throwing me a Princess & Frog birthday party at the end of the month. LOL Still a kid at heart.

Your card is super adorable. As always I love how your image is colored. The inside is just as cute as the outside of the card. Beautiful work!!

Carole RB said...

Hi Wendy

Beautiful card, very nice coloring. I love your card.

Paula (PEP) said...

I think the way you have done the inside is brilliant - with the black sentiment the frog needs to be the same colour or he'd be too pale. You're way ahead of me using digital images - I've yet to master watermarking my photos with iphoto & MAC!
Love the frog's golden crown & the gold is all the more effective because you've used a limited quantity of it.
