Inspired by a Snail Trail

For today's Inspiration Challenge 162, Stef chose Japanese Tenugui towels for us to browse. There were so many neat designs I was having a hard time choosing --- until I came upon this fun towel made into an apron:
I have several snail stamps - they just seem to appeal to me! The one I used is from a set by SUInk called At A Snail's Pace. I stamped the little snail in Brocade Blue ink, and filled in the shell with Diamond Stickles. The background is made with the Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing Folder. I brayered it with Night of Navy ink to give the swirls color.

My sentiment is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, which you can find HERE.
The Nestabilities I used are also available and in stock at RST HERE.

My card also fits another fun blog that you must check out (I am sure a lot of you have been there!) called Our Creative Corner. Today's challenge was to use two shades of blue and one neutral color.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday! Enjoy what you are doing!
