Snails with Hero Arts

Hi friends! Today's post is to play along with Addicted to CAS #202:
I love both CAS cards and Geometric, so I couldn't resist this challenge. I recently posted a blog about a Hero Arts set I purchased for their Summer 2021 Stamp Along  called Succulent Bouquet (Combo). In this set there is a tiny little snail, which is a creature my daughter just loves (bottom left corner).
I stamped them onto Ranger Watercolor Paper with Hero Art's Intensified Black Ink and watercolored with the colors from the ColorThrowDown #651 which is now closed, but still fun to use the colors from challenges. They are: navy, turquoise, magenta and green.
The Succulent Bouquet Combo has a coordinating die for the snail, too which really makes it easy.
For the Geometric part of the challenge, I choose squares.  Using Taylored Expressions' 6 X 6 Masking Stencil - Square Window, I ink blended Scrapbook.com's Caribbean Hybrid Ink softly in the set of 3 windows. I like to use Wendy Vecchi's Make Art Stay-tion when stenciling. It really helps to hold the stencil in place with no spray adhesive or tape involved.
If you are looking a a good versatile set of hybrid inks, Scrapbook.com has wonderful colors! They dry quickly and can be use with both watercolors and alcohol markers. Easy to use when ink blending, too!
Here are all the colors available in Scrapbook.com's Hybrid Ink line. I have them all (full set syndrome) and find them great!

I used a Flora & Fauna Clear Stamp set I have had for a long time and never used, called Slow Down Snail, now retired. It has some great sentiments and images and I made 2 more cards using it:

Thanks so much for joining me today! I am also going to submit to NBUS because I've never used the Slow Down Snail stamp set and don't know why. It is the cutest set!
