Snail Mail

A dear friend of mine challenged me this week to make a card using one of her Paper Nest Dolls Stamp and the use of the color green. I was not sure at the time why she was wanting me to do this but I am always up for a challenge. So here is my little creation. The Paper Nest Doll's stamp I used is called "Snail Mail". This adorable stamp is available in the The Paper Nest online store.

This card is being used in conjunction with the Paper Nest Dolls sponsored challenge over on the Marker Pop Website. Come by and enter your own "green" creations by clicking here.

Copic Colors Used:
Skin - E21, E00, E000, RV00
Hair - E21, E23, E33
Other - E13, E15, E18, E25, C3, C5, R27, Y17, YG05, YG07, YG17, YG61, and YG63

This was my first time coloring wood and it was a lot of fun.

 In support of Snail Mail I challenge each of you to create something this week and snail mail it to someone "just because". What a nice surprise that will be for them. I would like to take a moment and thank Christine for challenging me this week. I adore your stamps and I hope I did your stamp some justice. 

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
