Slimy Slug....


And a special welcome to my newest follower, a fellow Kiwi, Catherine, who's blog is here.

This card was made for a young lad, who lives on a farm, and I am sure he is familiar with slimy slugs, but probably not purple ones 😄

I started with this 'messy' piece of mixed media paper that I had 'played' with Brushos on nearly 12 months ago - it does have some sparkle in it

The image was one I stamped while house sitting - I coloured it with my Polychromo pencils and fussy cut it - once I had adhered it, the eyes and slime had glossy accents added

The sentiment was stamped, trimmed and brushed with some green ink, and added to the base of the purple card, that I had a scored some lines onto for interest.

The inside had another image from the set added to one corner, and that panel was also brushed with the green ink, as was the lemon layer that I used for the base.

I am sure this wee fellow looks way nicer than the Covid 'bug' I have just tested positive for!! 😦

Oh no, Maxine, I hope your recovery is a quick and uneventful one. The big secret seems to be to get plenty of rest, so look after yourself.
Regarding your card - what little boy would not love a purple slimy slug! LOL

Oh No Maxine, I hope you have a very mild version of the dreaded Covid. Sending you gentle hugs, look after yourself.
Love the vcard, just the right image and colours for a young person and I agree, I bet he sees plenty of slugs on the farm, probably does not bother about them at all.
Love the other little bug peeping in on the inside.
Blessings, Neet xxd

Maxine, this image made me smile! I personally don't care for Slugs but if I saw a Purple one, I would like it as purple is my favorite color. Thanks for sharing with us at the Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge.

Your card is so cute and love the colors...your background is perfect for this fellow! I tried to comment earlier and the week and for some reason couldn't...I think my computer is going wonky! It is getting cooler here, finally fallish, hope you all are doing well where you live, not sure about your summers winters etc.
