It's been a while since I've joined my DT in challenges and created a card, but today I managed. :o)
And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Birthday Snail Card - Croatian Sentiment. :o)
To make this card, I CASEd (copied and shared everything) a card that I made two years ago (here). I went with same design, used same products, just went with a bit different color scheme (on this card a snail's house is a bit lighter, yellowish). :o)
How I made my card...
I stamped the snail and the sentiment directly on a top folded Kraft paper card base.
I colored the snail and ground with various colored pencils. To add extra shades to the image, I used Stabilo Pens (Markers).
Then I colored the speech bubble sentiment and snail's eyes with a white pigment ink pen. I managed to mess couple black lines with the white pigment ink, but I fixed them with a black fine liner.
Lastly, I coated snail's house with a transparent varnish to create glossy accents and left it dry on air through the night.
I love how my card turned out. :o)
