I've been dying to use this set and wanted to do something cute and special for FIL's bday. He loved it!
I stamped the card front w/ Canvas in Certainly Celery and then ran it through the CB D'Vine Swirls EF. Then I stamped the images w/ Black Staz-on so I could watercolor them - masked the mushrooms. I use old CD's as palettes for watercoloring. I just scribble some color with my markers and blend as desired. Gee, with AOL's help we sure have plenty of old CDs!! So I played with the colors and laid down layers. Then when they were dry, I cut them all out. The snails' shells and eyes have Crystal Effects on them to give them some shine. And the spots on the mushrooms have some Stardust Clear gel pen on them for some glitz. I played with my square scallop punches and made rectangles instead of squares!
Then the mushroom on the envelope is colored w/ markers and I used a white Souffle pen on the spots.
