RIDING ALONG...SLOWLY




Hello Everyone....

Veeeery early Saturday morning, but didn't want to wait to share this card as I'm really happy with it, and wanted to share it now!!...[that does not happen too often]





Gorgeous Boo and Snooky from A and T Digital Designs ...To me.. Boo is the pixie and Snooky the snail...but I could be wrong...





A close up of the happy pair...all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils, then fussy cut out..all the images were fussy cut out...the papers were, inside..Prima 'Botannica' and the outside MME 'Lost and Found two'...





Not too sure where these mushrooms -toadstools came from, but they are very cool...



Card open...side one...my first aperture card and my inspiration came from Debbies blog but the only die big enough for the opening was a fancy edge die..but worked out okay...  Fiskas punched grass...best punch ever!!...I so love grass..lol..




Side two....I have had this card in my head for awhile and finally made it the other night....the dragon flies up the top were a clear stamp and wet embossed, then fussy cut out too..added some liquid pearls to their wings...

So there we have it....this card.. at this stage is a keeper..dont want to give it away.
