SWALK - Slugs & Snails!

Well after watching Leann's Spectrum Noir DVD I just had to do this card.  I followed her step by step and think I "got it"!!  So many wonderful hints and tips, I can see this permanently being in my DVD drive!!!

I used a 6x6 scalloped card and then core'dinations from the Tim Holtz Nostalgic Collection along with backing paper from the SWALK 1st CD.  I used my Nestie to cut out the scalloped square of green from my 1st matt of green, you'd never know, saves getting another sheet! 
I then dabbed a green inkpad on my glass cutting mat and then used a dry wet wipe to VERY CAREFULLY soften the edges of the card, I can't get away with the Ink Essentials blending tool and pads, it just drags - any tips would be greatfully appreciated! I did manage but it was heart in the mouth time I can tell you!!
Next I mounted the sentiments onto more Core'dinatons and coloured over the top to match in and then the final finishing touch, my 1st Epiphany!! I stamped the snail and coloured him using the Speccies and he fit perfectly!

Fingers crossed for my next one all by myself!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
