AAA Cards Challenge #181 - Up To One Third + optional twist Summer in January

Time for the first challenge of 2021 over at AAA Cards.

It was such a pleasure to create a warm sunny scene on my card during all this dreary cold weather we're having here in the UK at the moment.

To ensure I stuck to just one third of my card front I die cut a strip from the bottom and then used stencils to build a background. I added a stamped and hand cut snail into the mix and a simple sentiment and called it done.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Snail Mail
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched basic edges
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, squeezed lemonade, fossilized amber, picked raspberry, worn lipstick, tumbled glass, twisted citron; Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, Y00, Y15, Y17, RV02, RV09, YR02, YR04, YG06
