Thanks for coming by my blog, today is a whacky day for all the Teapot Followers...we are at the Tour of France and having a party. Who knows if we'll get by as spectators, join the race, or end up shopping at some fancy stamp botique...but this snail in my little card is waiting and worrying about what to do as well.
To see the inspiration story and card from Cindy, visit her blog here: http://mothermark.blogspot.com/
My snail is a little shy...she feels a ruckus and a rumblin under her shell so close to the ground, and is thinking about venturing out to the road to get a better view...well as well as a snail can see with one eye!! She is curious and wonders if there is a big storm coming and should she seek cover...but her curiosity is getting the better of her. Now I am wondering what she should do in this situation, what do you think??
This scene was created with Basic Grey's acrylic stamp sets, Critters n Treats...the clouds are made from an acrylic sheet cut with scalloped scissors and sponged at angles in bashful blue ink. The tree was covered with artichoke ink then hit in a few places with glorious green ink for some dimension. Then I decided to add some berries to the tree with some bright red brads. To complete, I took some felt flowers and addded these big BasicGrey brad centers. The ribbon was was threaded with ginham, then another wider gingham was tied in a bow and added to the top. The background polka dot paper was ran through the cuttlebug with the flower and circle embossing folder. Last, some crystal effects was added to my snail's shell.
Can't wait to see what unfolds today at the party...hope to see ya there!!
