Take it slow

     Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today I am sharing a card that was originally made for the Cardmakers Magazine Blog Hop I just participated in.  I just couldn't make up my mind if I liked it or not and ended up creating the Petunia card for the hop.  This card uses Tiny Townie Sally rides her snail from Stamping Bella.  I cut my image panel with a SSS Stitched Rectangles die and then went back after I had colored the image and used a SSS Large Tag die to cut out the center of the image.  It's popped up on foam.  

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, R20, R22, R30
hair E57
clothing B00, BG01, BG45, BG57, YR24, C00, C2
snail G40, G21, G24, YG03, BG93, BG96, E40, E42
grass YG11, YG07, YG17
flowers YG63, RV11, RV34, R85, YG95, YG03, Y00, Y06, Y17

     I thought the sentiment on the DP paper went great with the sentiment that comes with the stamp set.

     Have a blessed day!

  1. Akkkk, omgosh!!! LOOK at how cute this is! You are a genius, my friend! LOVE your coloring, and your designs always blow me away, too! I think it is soooo creative what you did with the popped up tag here! So love seeing a peek of the scene going off the sides, too!

  2. Oh, Tracy…You're killin' me!!! This is tooooo sweet!!! I LOVE her stripes and polkas and the sweet fresh blossoms! And who couldn't love the image itself with her riding the cute snail! Just plain adorable!!!

  3. Ohhh boy, now that's a nifty way to stage a card. Love that overlapped stamping and the image is beautiful. Did you ever see Monster's Inc where they are in college and that poor snail takes the entire movie to get to his first class and then schools over by the end, when he finally makes it??? LOL...sorry if that's a spoiler....
    GORGEOUS work my friend!!

  4. This is very cute and you are so brave to go back and cut your image after you have coloured it, I would be bound to make a mistake and ruin all my work. I love this design though very original and super cute too.
