A Slow and Steady Blog Crawl

Today you are at our  QKR Stampede Slow and Steady Blog Crawl .
The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.
If you just came from the very talented  and special friend Kristie's blog then you are in the right place. If you didn't I would strongly suggest you go back to the beginning- QKR Stampede blog has the full line up- so any time you get lost or a link isn't working you can check in there.
This month our theme for the crawl is Turtles 
I have two cards to share today using the same image
10303 Kissed is one of the most adorable turtles I have seen- what do you think?
 I also used 17814 Wodden Fence- I think it is suppose to be Wooden , but that is what the link says.LOL
I started by airbrushing the background with my Copic markers and my air compressor. I colored the fence and roughly cut and added as if it was going up a hill.
Colored my turtle in various shades and added a little Liquid Glass to his shell, fussy cut- and added a handful of Roses from Pizzazz Aplenty. Ribbon from my stash.
On my second card I used this fun paper I have been hoarding-saving that had some great turtles. Used a little corrugated kraft paper and gray card stock to mat and fussy cut this turtle also.
Had to add a couple gems and yummy ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Now hop over to next person- which is our talented Monika.
Challenges I would like to enter:
Art Impression Stamps- Anything goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge- Anything goes
A Spoon Full Of Sugar- all creatures great & small
