Inky Paws Challenge

Hello, hello! Happy Friday :-)
Today I have a card I made for Inky Paws Challenge over at Newton's Nook Designs!

Inky Paws #24 Sketch Challenge | Newton's Nook Designs

Fun sketch!
Here is my take ;-)

Don't you just love this adorable snail!?

I colored his shell with Pistachio Pudding but when I colored the bottom of the watercolor paper for some grass, the colors were so close! So I colored with Coastal Cabana over the Pistachio Pudding, and they made that beautiful turquoise color! I love it! Of course I brushed it with the glitter pen ;-) His body was colored with Sahara sand first then So Saffron. I then colored his cheek with Pink Pirouette. 
I very lightly colored the sky with Soft Sky then stamped the sentiment.

I punched several chevrons in the 1-1/4" strip, and didn't waste the punched out pieces ;-) That patterned paper is from the Attic Boutique, a really old DSP pack from 2012! 

That cute cloud paper under the vellum is from the Sweet Little Things DSP, they're so cute! Th vellum also has clouds on it, can you see that big, white one in the middle?

I added that cute washi tape on the bottom because I didn't like the plain look. It doesn't disturb the sketch, does it? 
I am really happy with how this card turned out, the little snail is just way too cute!!

  1. Wow - this is SO FUN! I love how you used the arrow cut out and the reverse of it for the two flag parts of the sketch - such a creative idea! And your watercoloring on that snail is so pretty! Thanks for playing along with our Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook Designs.
