#8 Animals marched 2 by 2...

Here we are with another challenge at Twist of Faith!  This week, we are celebrating ANIMALS. Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps... and we are always thrilled to have them join us!

I have created with the Polkdot Snail ... isn't it the cutest!  I coloured three images, with Spectrum Noir pens, and fussy cut... oh, so much cutting!

My matting layers are textured card and patterned paper, and I handstitched borders at top and bottom.  I love the scripture I used, because to me it means that the little things (creatures too!) are just as important as the larger things in life... and it speaks to how frail, yet how supported and strong life can be.  

Back to my snail image....I have created it in 3D, using the base image layer, and two trimmed images... I have coloured the shell of the base layer.... of the second layer I have inserted the green snail... the third layer I have cut in the spiral following the shell curves.... and fixed it with foam tape, increasing in layers of the foam, to lift the centre of the shell... and of course it doesn't show at all in the full photograph, so here it is...

I'm also entering this card in to these challenges...

Hi Pauline, I'm so pleased to be visiting you and your blog! Hope you are well (and Becky is doing well...?) I still don't know how you do it AND manage to get so much crafting/blogging done too...AMAZING!
Life with me is still very hectic, and I don't do anywhere near as much crafting OR blogging as I'd love to, but not complaining, that's just life at the moment.
I love your card and sentiment, and it's perfect for THE CRAFTY PAD challenge this week, so glad you linked up!
Take care, hugs, Ali x
