Materials Needed: 

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #338 – Froggy
100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Cotton Linter)
1 paper casting* #338 Froggy (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions).
1 greeting card
2 pieces of your choice of decorative papers and colors (we used a piece of 
metallic gold approx. 2 3/4” x 3 3/4", and a piece of  and green patterned paper with black and gold flecks approx. 2 3/4” x 3 3/4")
Paint – metallic green, black, metallic gold 
Glue

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see 
Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.

Instructions:

1.  Let casting dry thoroughly. Then varnish the casting to seal it before painting (so wet paint won't make design disappear). Let dry. Optional: Apply a 2nd coat of varnish for more permanence. Variation: Varnish only the frog design and leave background area unvarnished.
2.  Apply black paint to frog design and let dry. 
3.  Apply metallic green paint to upper part of frog body design so that black still shows as an outline of body, as shown, and let dry. 
4.  Apply metallic gold dot for each eye and let dry.
4.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
5.  Cut papers to fit your card and to then fit one over the other leaving nice borders s shown. Glue 2 pieces together and let dry. Then glue them to the card.
6.  Glue casting to center of top paper.
