At Snail speed...

This very tired rabbit riding a snail depicts a familiar feeling - had to download it.  Besides, look at that coloring opportunity!  This is a freebie from Elizabeth E. Dulemba's website: Coloring Page Tuesdays.

I traced the entire snail with an Embossing Pen and then embossed with clear EP for a little shiny definition.  The snail was colored with Copics and given a marvelous, sparkly sheen with Wink of Stella.  It was mounted with foam tape on a Bokeh background - DP by Paper House Productions: "Artist Paper Pix".  The edges of the background were inked with 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink.  "White Opal" Liquid Pearl was added to the center of the buttons [from my stash] & they were randomly attached with glue dots to be the flowers.  She was adorned with a small yellow ribbon tied in a bow around her neck.  White dotted snail slime was added with a white pen.

I created this for the new 613 Ave C  challenge... "ATG/ optional Twist: "Use Buttons &/or Bows."  You have the month of June to show your creative talents!   For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas from the DT's incredible inspiration concepts -  click HERE!

Create wildly and color with abandon!
