Snail Trail

Welcome back, and thank you for visiting.

I had a card to make the other day for a youngster who loves snails!!  So my choice of image was rather simple.

The background was made by spraying ink onto white card - only my wee sprayer has almost flat batteries, so it leaves a rather speckled effect.  I added extra green across the bottom of the card.

The sentiment was embossed using red embossing powder and then filled in with gold Kindy Glitz.

These happy snails were stamped in with Walnut distress ink and embossed, then watercoloured with distress and dye inks.

They were then fussy cut and mounted across the bottom of the card using foam tape for some dimension.

To create a 'slime trail' I used some twinkling H2O paint.

The panel was them mounted over green and red layers and finished with green and red bling in the corners.

I am linking this to:
