I am loving snails!

I don't know why, but snails have really been catching my attention.  Wanted to share my latest creation.  This is an image from Ching-Chou Kwik called Dandelion Fields.  The snail was a challenge for me but a lot of fun to color.  I tried to create an atmosphere of night and magical twilight which is why the dandelions are glowing.  It's my next development phase - how to do backgrounds.  Oh well, I hope you like her and her snail!

These are the supplies I used for this card:

Copic Markers (the colors used are pictured below)
Distress inks - Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky, Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss
Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and lace
paper from my supply
wooden heart embossed with Fran-tage embossing powder


I Get Carried Away!

Sally and Her Snail

I made this sweet card for a new, but already very dear friend.  She's an amazing artist, and it surprises me that she wants hand made items from me.  I did enjoy coloring this one up.  The stamp is a rubber stamp from Stamping Bella called Tiny Townie Sally and Her Snail.  I thought the saying was appropriate, because I really have been carried away by her personality and kindness.  It is from the hostess set Time to Celebrate by Stampin Up.

These are the markers I used to color Sally and her snail.  I used watercolor for the background.
