Lavinia Stamps "Snails and Pods" Card

I made a little card using a Lavinia Stamp I've had in my stash for months but never used.  It's the "Snail Set" of two small snails.

I used "Bundle Sage" Distress Oxide Ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Pods" stencil to create the shaded background.

Using Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple coloured ink, I stamped the "Floral Spray" horizontally.  Colouring by painting "Seedless Preserve" Distress Oxide Ink applied with a brush.

I stamped the snail, part of the "Snail Set" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, colouring the snail by painting "Mowed Lawn" Distress Oxide Ink, applied with a brush.  I then used a metallic silver pen for the body area.

Finally, I stamped the hello sentiment, part of a Lawn Fawn "Simply Sentiments" set, in Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.  I added highlights to the flower and the snail using a gold shimmer Sakura pen.
