Snail’s Portrait

hedgehog painting a snail on clay pot outdoors in summer
choosing my favourite penny black stamp was challenging, but i decided to use this portraiture stamp for penny black at allorts‘ june challenge – you’re my favourite. i decided to use some of my other favourites on this card:  i watercoloured the image, including the sky, with distress inks; added white liquid pearls to snail’s dots; stickles on the sun; my favourite new punch on the pink layer; and pink and green. i’m also submitting this to the monthly fan club challenge at splitcoaststampers.

as i was painting this morning, the mail arrived with the penny black stamp i won last month and this cute card from brenda. thanks so much!
