My Inkadinkado Entry...Better Late Than Never

Here is one of my entries for the Inkadinkado card call (you can enter up to 3 cards/projects and get 3 free stamps...what a deal! Click HERE for the deets). So I decided to use my Belated Birthday snail stamp...I've just loved this little guy and have been dieing to use him! I watercolored him with markers on watercolor paper (HERE's the tutorial on how I did that) and added some stickles for his snail trail. It's been such a long time since I've seen a snail that I had to ask around to find out what color they were...LOL...I thought green and brown, but hey, my memories getting old! LOL! Below is the recipe, enjoy!

Recipe:
  • Stamp: Inkadinkado Belated Birthday
  • Paper: My Minds Eye and Watercolor
  • Punch: Fiskars Threading Water
  • Other: Rhinestones, Sticklers, Paper Piercer, Twine

That is SO cute, Paula! Love the stamp & sentiment and your amazing watercolors.

I may send one in. I don't know if I have a sentiment that will work on the outside though.

p.s. Sent you a PM on SBA
