Smitten Snake

This month's Paper Makeover Challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps is to use Neon Green!  Use a PMS rubber stamp or digi on your creation and you could win a prize.  {wink}  Check out the details and link up your project at the PMS Blog

I stamped Smitten Snake on some green DP and cut him out.  I used a white gel pen for his teeth and eyes and a pink stardust glitter pen for his belly - love that shimmer!  {grin}  Then I couldn't resist adding pink gems to all the white squares on the DP too. 

The saying actually comes in a straight line, but to fit the circle better I cut the words apart {gasp!} and stacked them on my acrylic block.  I can always line them up straight again on my block if I want.  If you do this, be sure to stamp on a scrap paper a couple times first - just to make sure the words are all straight and {ahem} right side up.  Just sayin' from experience here!  {lol}

The sketch that I used is from the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at SCS.
