I usually make cards for a specific person or event. But today I just made this for the fun. The movie Turbo is coming out soon. Snails are an inside family fun thing -- I collect them from my sister's garden to use in our terrariums at school. My sister wants to get rid of them from her garden. My son's girlfriend collects chatz-kity (??)snails.
Over at There She Goes Stamps the challenge is to make a card or project creating a scene using animals! I once again used the Slow and Steady set from There she Goes stamps.
To create "Turbo", I covered the eye before stamping. I colored the body on yellow paper and cut him out, then added some shading with color pencils. I embossed him again with white on blue paper, then added some shading with blue color pencils; cut this out and adhered to the main image. Some red smooch trim, googly eyes, hand-drawn smile, and crystal effects for shine and dimension finished him off.
I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday. I tried to make it as if Turbo was at the finish line of a race. I didn't add a sentiment yet -- this might make a good "congratulations" or "you did it" type of card.
Thanks for looking -- hope you are having a winning day!
