Snail Mail (MFTW20)

Happy Tuesday! Here's a quick and cute little card I made for this past weekend's challenge (MFTW20)from the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog.

The challenge was to create a no layer card - you could use embelishments to your hearts content, but no layers! A difficult challenge for me. Normally I'm not satisfied unless there are at least 4 layers and a 1/2 sheet of pop dots on a card :0) But this was good therapy to get me out of my comfort zone and typical style. Now I need a color challenge for the same reason!! Seems like I am always falling back to the same colors.

The colors didn't show up to well in this pic. The snails are all different colors, but this pic makes them look very similar. The smaller snails were stamped from Ashlie Fairy and the larger snail is a stand alone image. All of the shells were colored in with Copics and then I used the colorless blender Copic to create the dots on the larger snail.

Hop on over to the blog to see some other awesome one layer cards and link up you own! You've got until Thursday to link it up. And then Friday I'll be back with another challenge for you . . .hmmm!
