A Happy Discovery

I love it when I find new ways my stamps can work together! My sweet little snail stamp was designed over a year ago and was on my second plate of stamps...way before I ever thought of drawing fairies. But isnt that snail the perfect size for the the fairy to take him for a ride?? The snail is not part of the Enchanted Fairies set but a single stamp that sells for only $2.50 so it is a great add on for this set.

For this card I cased a layout and technique from Julie Buler's blog called thinking outside of the box. First I stamped the fairy on white card stock and then I masked it so I could stamp the snail 'under' him. The images are colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and then I cut out the panel according to Julie's directions. Papers used are SU! Certainly Celery and Pink Passion and striped paper from Rusty Pickle. Some swiss dot organdy ribbon and pink dew drops finish up this card.
