* Vera Lane Studio: Slow Down, Breath, Relax


It's my DT day at Vera Lane Studio and today I have a card using some of the older sets of digis.

I created a little scene mainly using Snails Pace.

I love the expressions on the snails' faces. Vera Lane characters are so awesome and quirky; they always make me smile! These snails are perfect for decorating envelopes containing Happy Mail.
I used elements from other sets: the birds are from Woodland Props, while the cloud is from Helga's Hedgehog. The butterfly is from Blossom and the bee is from Sprinkle and Sparkle.

I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them, making sure to run around the cut edges with a black marker pen to hide any imperfections in my cutting!
The background is acrylic paints dabbed onto the mixed media paper with a damp baby wipe.  I added some stencilling with Distress Oxides and stamped some text onto the side edges.  I inked all around the edges of the background, first with Distress Oxides and then with Ranger black ink. I also added some black and white paint splatters with a fan brush.
All the images were glued directly onto the background. The sentiment was cut into strips and outlined in black fine-liner pen.

That's all from me for today.
