The All Male Snail Band!

This is a new digital image I did for Hambo Stamps!

Now the back story..... this was from one of the stories I tell my kids. There was a big parade that day in Marmoosia where the Marmoots live. The 'All Male Snail Marching Band' were to lead the way. Of course being snails they were awful slow and didn't get very far after an hour of 'marching'. So someone had the bright idea of turning the parade around so the snails were now last instead of first. The rest of the parade went off without a hitch!

This is a card I made with the digital image. I printed it on cardstock then I used a graphite pencil to do the background and didn't do too much erasing before I went over it all with Prismacolor pencils. Kind of liked the 'dirty' look for this. I like the way it turned out, the snail kind of 'pops' if you know what I mean. Thanks for looking!!
