And fussy cut them out.
I applied some glossy accents to the toadstools spots and windows, and whilst I waited for that to dry I created the background.
I took some Neenah and using Twisted Citron & Tumbled Glass Distress inks and blended them to create a simple Grass-sky background.
The cloud is from the Mama Elephant Landscape trio set and I die cut some Neenah and stamped the “A little snail mail” sentiment along with two of the heart stamps using Simon Says Stamp Cobblestone ink….I did originally try this with vellum and embossing powder, but for this card it just didn’t look right to me.
I adhered the cloud to the background and then decided to using some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle over it…confession time, I squeezed the pen when I really shouldn’t have and ended up with a big drop on my distress ink background, I REALLY didn’t want to do the background again so I just flicked the pen across the background to give a sparkle splatter look…I am really not sure I like it, but I just went with it.
I then die cut the Stitched Square frame from Neenah and using some foam tape I adhered it to the inked square.
I then adhered the rest of the elements to the card, I decided to put the snail on the edge of the square and used some foam tape on him. I then adhered those googly eyes along with enamel dots and the card was done.
This card was a total non planned go with the flow type card, and I smile every time I look at it because that snail is just so much fun !
The toadstool house was brilliant to colour and you can see in the picture above the dimension from the Glossy Accents.
I have sent this card to a friend in the states and I hope it makes her smile.
Thank you all for stopping by my blog today.
