Slugs & Snails.....

The challenge over at Simply Less is More this week is
 
SPIDERS OR INSECTS
 
I have to say that the thought of making another spider card was worrying me - what with my phobia - and after my husband waking me up in the early hours of Sunday morning because I was screaming during one of my regular spider nightmares (sad but yes it's true!) I decided I wasn't going to make a spider card....so I have gone with a snail instead.  Ok...I know a snail is not strictly an insect as it's in the class Gastropoda (I had to look that up) but I look on them as insecty pests as they eat my summer bedding  - the flowers that is - not my duvet!
 
Snail New Home Card using Penny Black 'Critter Party' stamp
 
I have used an old stamp by Penny Black called Critter Party and I coloured it with Copics.  The sentiment is by Little Clare Designs 'At Home'.

Again this is one of those cards where I kept wanting to put more on it but in the end I left it as is apart from adding some Wink of Stella to the snail's body to give him some slime.

  1. So adorable! I'm happy for a snail to appear in the challenge... close enough ;-) You're giving me major envy of that gorgeous cross stitch rectangle die too. It looks amazing on every card! Love the colouring, and what a fab idea to use Wink of Stella for some snail slime, which did make me laugh! Thanks for sharing with us at Less is More :)
