Spring Wishes

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy March.  I am a keen gardener.  I love growing my own food.  Last year was a wash out.  What the slugs didn't eat died due to lack of summer.  This year, well, I can't do much about the weather, but maybe I can get lucky with the little slimy dudes/dudettes.........

A gardening good luck sign using the Rubber Dance March challenge colours:-

I made a background using Ripe Persimmon and Cracked Pistachio distress inks.  Then I stamped a border using the paintbrushes from Rubber Dance Artist Plate and embossed in white.

The snail is EyeConnect chipboards.  I stamped the Totem Snail's shell and horns with the large spiral from Round in Circles.  I used the brush numbers stamp from Artist Plate to add texture to the snail's body.  I used Rubber Dance Alphabet Uno to stamp my spring wish and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder.  I added a neon wool hanger.  

All stamps are from Rubber Dance.
