Spot the well known phrase or saying!

Just a bit of fun, this one! I combined this week's Something Completely Different (object: tag; theme: crowns) and Lots to Do (use Grungeboard) challenges.

My little froggie stamp does actually have a crown and I could have just left the final one as a complete stamping but I fancied something with a bit more dimension so the Grungeboard one seemed perfect! It's coloured with a Krylon pen and has nail art gems (green of course!) at the tips.

The frogs were stamped on green paper, given a little shading with a couple of Copics, the whites of their eyes filled in with an Inkssentials pen and then they were cut out (chopping their crowns off in the process!).

The princely frog also has a little glitteriness courtesy of some Spica pen (green on his eyelids, clear squiggles over his body). He's been given a royal lift so he's above his lowly counterparts, courtesy of some foam pads.

Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):
Little Guy (Kim Hughes Collection)

Everyday Petites (Mona Lisa Moments line)

Paper:

Smooth white

Scrapblock Layers (CHF)

Ink:
Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Espresso)

Tim Holtz Distress by Ranger (Shabby Shutters)


Other:
Copic markers

Inkssentials white pen by Ranger
Copic Spica glitter pens (green and clear)
Grungeboard crown

Nail art gems

Krylon leafing pen (Pale Gold)

Grosgrain ribbon

Embroidery floss
Foam pads


Did you fill out the saying from the visual clues? (You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince)

Thanks for stopping by!
