Birthday Snail Card - Croatian Sentiment (bastel-traum challenge #102)

Hi everyone :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at bastel-traum and our theme for the challenge #102 is Animals. :o)

The challenge starts today, June 15th, 2021, at 9 AM, CET (UTC +1) and ends on July 15th, 2021, at 8:55 AM, CET (UTC +1). Find all the details about the challenge, rules and prizes in a challenge post (here).

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)

I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: a snail from 'Chameleon' and a speech bubble sentiment from 'Croatian Sentiments'Sretan rođendan means Happy Birthday. :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)

Card measurements: 89 mm x 121 m(3 1/2" x 4 3/4")
