Katzelkraft Escargot de l'espace and les fleur dingues, with haul video

Escargot de l'espace, the snail from outer space, seemed only logical to combine it with les fleur dingues ( crazy flowers) as to  me they could also be alien.

These are unmounted rubber stamps and I don't mount them. the foam in the stamper's friend or Misti have enough give. If you don't have a stamping tool, you can still use them unmounted, just put some craftfoam or a mousepad underneath your paper.

I had started with the "tentacle" flowers in black, was too stark, then I made a mask for the snail and stamped the flowers behind him in grey, still didn't like it.
Then I cut the flowers apart and re stamped them with 2 others from the set in Versafine onyx black ink. I'm going to stick them behind a "hill:. I could have done it in green, but I chose white. It;s a Joy! crafts no end borders (6002/0923) and I cut it from my usual cardbase Canon paper that's a nice and sturdy 140lbs of digital copy paper.
Then I fuzzy cut the snail as I had stamped him on the Crafter's companion Neenah paper and I already had wasted one panel.

Colored the snail with Spectrum Noir markers (BG1-2-3-5). Used waterbased markers for the flowers as I didn't want to alcohol to seep through, of course it's not the right paper to take watercolor markers, but it was OK. I thought the middle plant's flowers looked like eyes with a mohican tuft on the top, so funny. So I put some googly eyes on there.

Mounted the happy birthday panel with foam tape and part of the snail too and his body I mounted with tape runner.
