Mami Doodles DT challenge 2 - use ribbons




How cheeky is this little snail, peeking from behind his flower checking the coast is clear before scoffing my lettuce.
I coloured my images using the fill tool in Photofiltre, makes for speedy creations. I painted a terracotta pot cream using acrylic paint and as it is for indoor use only added some ribbon around the top. The pot pick is a wooden skewer, with the image layered with nestabilities, accented with a Daisy D decoupage flower and wooden ladybird (my current obsession) and I got the lettuce with rootball in Lidl for €1.29 - a novel alternative to the usual houseplant gift, the recipient can eat it (if escargot doesn't get there first!)
While looking for inspiration I found the snail poem and I just thought it was brilliant - the wall hanging is given dimension by decoupaging the snails and using foam pads to raise the flowers.
Finally, the flowerpot card is made using DCWV glitter flowers that I have had forever and usually give to the kids to make cards with. I curled the layers with the edge of my scissors and layered with foam pads. Handcut the leaves and made flower centres with a punch and adhesive pearl. Ribbon on the flowerpot and silver toadstool (just got these - you'll be seeing more!)and I used escargot as an embellishment, I covered his shell with diamond glaze and it looks quite dimensional IRL.
Digital Tuesday wants anything but a card so check twice!

Sarah, you always have the most creative mind and this is an example of it, the wall hanging is so cute and the lettuce pot is to die for.

I am also in love of the first card of your previous post, I am definitely envious of your die stash...

Thanks!
