oct 2017 release collage

Hey, welcome, y’all! :)  Today’s the big day and the October Essentials by Ellen release is now available!

Today, I’m sharing a project using my new “Snailed It” stamp set (Snailed it Die Set):

Snailed it-004-je

 

This is a super easy peek-a-boo card, made by simply hiding the snail behind two die cut leaves that are secured to the card with a mini-brad–just pivot the leaves to reveal her bidding you a friendly hello! :)

Yes, I squealed after making this and bounced off my chair. *big cheesey grin*

I really love how shading directly on the solid images with the Avery Elle pigment inks looks! Stamping the leaves onto a lighter green card stock makes a great two-tone effect, too.

That little scallop border beneath the sentiment was made by inking up just one of the rows of scallops from a backdrop image in Wonky Backdrops, and I just hand-drew her facial features with a fine tip marker.

This is SUCH a fun set to build little garden scenes with! I was going for a “hand-carved”/linocut style.  What do you think?
