Stamping Bella - Sally and Her Snail

Hi everyone

As I don't have a Design Team card to share with you today, I thought I would share instead a card I made using one of my favourite Stamping Bella stamps. I used Aqua markers to colour with and with glitter pen over the top of the snail shell and flowers.

I love adding yellow and lilac together as they really work together well. I decided to make quite a CAS card and kept the embellishment simple.

Here's What I Did
Firstly I matted my 7" x 7" card base with a piece of pretty patterned paper and another strip across it.

Next I printed my image directly onto my watercolour card stock and coloured it with watercolour Aqua markers, to add a little extra definition I used pencils in a few places.  The finish image was die cut into a square and matted onto a larger die cut square and added to the card base using foam tape.

To finish off I added pearls, a die cut flower and leaves, plus glitter pen to the flowers and the snail shells.

Here's What I Used
