Ogre Love

There are two posts today!  To see the Leap Frog Bunnies card for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge, just scroll down!

There's a new challenge over at Hambo Hoedown!  This week's challenge is all about DISTRESSING!  If you know me at all, you know I LOVE destressing!  Woohoo!  I used the Ogre - digi by Hambo Stamps and coloured it with Copics (ogre-YG97, YG95, YG93; shirt-YR18, YR15, Y17; shorts-E99, E35, E34, E21; suspenders-E99, YR18, YR15).  Have a look at that ribbon!  I just LOVE it!  It's Hambo's Sweat Pea Webbed Weave!  Isn't that awesome!  I distressed the heck out ove all the pieces of the card.  I wanted to add some sort of flower embellishment but do ogres really have anything to do with flowers?  So I sprayed the die cut flowers (from Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals Die) with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist.  While they were wet, I crumpled the flowers up as much as possible and flattened them back out a little.  After letting them dry, I swiped my SU Whisper White Craft Ink Pad over the edges of the flowers.  I pinned them down with brads.  On the larger brad, I coloured the flower with my YG95 Copic Marker.  Here's a closeup on those flowers:
