Fabulous Friend – Snail Slider Card With Two Tone Stamped Greeting
Hello little honey bees! Happy Monday to you!
I shared a sneak peek of this on Instragram last week, and I am excited to finally reveal the full card to all of you! Today I have a fun, interactive SLIDER card, which features the snail from the Special Delivery set, hearts from the Country Wreath stamp set, the word FABULOUS from the Beautiful Life set, and lots of words from the Sentiment Builder set! Oh my, oh my… I love the sentiment builder stamp set so much – you can get so many different greetings from one stamp set!
AND, I thought it would be fun to share a video tutorial, so you guys can all get a chance to see how I made the card, and see me in action! But before that, lets have a quick run down and some close up photos!
I decided that for a change I would colour mister snail with my Spectrum Noir colouring pencils as I hadn’t used them in a while. I also used a little of the blending solution to blend the pencil lines a little! I didn’t blend too much on his shell because I quite liked the texture it gave the shell!
For the greeting, I used good old black ink next to some pink colours for the word Fabulous! I used my misti tool to stamp it in a light pink ink first of all, then I stamped over the top once again but with only the bottom section of the stamp inked up in a darker tone of ink. The Misti tool sure does make techniques like this pretty easy to achieve, and I love the final look! I simply love the way you can mix and match these stamps to create lots of greetings!
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to watch the video to see the full run through on how I made todays card!
🙂 Have a happy day, my little bees!
