Snips and Snails

Happy Monday everyone... Sorry this is late but Blogger was having technical troubles and I could not upload my image... It is time for another Totally Stampalicious Blog challenge - today's challenge is to use Blue and Yellow on your card or project - any shades. I used this adorable image and sentiment "Sean with Flower " - a Bugaboo Brat image that Totally Stampalicious Store has turned into a clear acrylic stamp. Image was coloured with prismacolour pencil crayons and gamsol, plus I used markers to colour his hair and the strips on his t-shirt. I made the blue background panel from white card stock. I score the lines diagonally to match the yellow patterned paper, next I ran my Tempting Turquoise ink pad across the paper several times. I cut out the dp and close to cocoa matting with the Top note die and the oval sentiment and matting with nestabilities, sponged all edges. Made the pleated brown ribbon and sewed all edges and ribbon. Sentiment panel and Sean are popped up.

This card will also qualify for Crazy 4 Challenges - to add pleats to your card, plus Splitcoast Stampers Free for All #F4A15 - to make a card for a man or boy and today's Technique challenge - to make a card using your favourite technique and to make it personal. My favorite technique is gamsol magic and I love to sew on my cards. For the personal side - I am sending this card off to a little boy who is having chemo treatments (one of the ladies on SCS - nephew).
I hope you will join us over at Totally Stampalicious Blog - please make sure to check out what the other DT members have come up with to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy stamping and creating...

Hugs... Pat
