MYRTLE THE TURTLE


I made this card for a very very special friend. She has a little desert turtle named Myrtle. Myrtle is brown and not green. She has a wonderful little flower garden she stays in and is enjoying the summer. I saw this stamp at the Scrapbook Expo last weekend and immediately thought of her. It is a Inky Antics Stamp. The little hill she is standing on is a Whiff of Joy stamp. I am entering this card in The Simon Says Challenge, Stamp with Fun Challenge, Allsorts Challenge, and the ABC Challenge.


The images are heat embossed. After coloring with Copics I went back over the leaves and some of the flowers with my versamark pen then clear embossed them. Only a little stickles was applied.


The leaves were punched with a MS punch and layered so she could take a nap. The green DP is embossed and has glitter on it. I couldn't get it to show up very well in the pictures.

Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Please email me if you have any questions.

This is just the CUTEST!!! Love the smile on Myrtle's little face...you have done a great job with coloring her. Your clouds are FABULOUS!! I think you need to do a tutorial on how to do those.

hello Dianne, this is a beautiful card both inside and out. I always think it is so nice when people take the time to do the inside as well as it really gives a card that polished look.
