I've been having a bit of trouble loading my photo over the last 24 hours, which is funny when you see what I'm trying to upload!
Paper Pal Arts, (PPA130) so when I was sitting in my stamp room I thought of it and decided to try it out. The color challenge was Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade, and your choice of a third color. Living in the redwood forest, as I do, my life outside my windows IS Always Artichoke (redwood "leaves"), Lucky Limeade (ferns), with some red and brown (bark). I chose Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede just from looking out the window. If I'd of had a banana slug stamp I really would have been set, but barring that, I remembered this cute snail in the Button Buddies stamp set and went to work. The swirl of the Texturz plate makes me think of the movement of snails, and I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter to mark my snail's trail! Other details you may not notice- for the background, to make it look like wood, I drug the Soft Suede stamp pad across the Artichoke card stock. The other detail is distressing the edges of the "belly band". I used the distressing tool in the Cutter kit. You could use your fingernail but I don't sell that! LOL! Now, who should I send this to?
