Gone Buggy...

Craft Your Passion is having a fun challenge - "Gone Buggy" starting today.  I've chosen this Ladybug in a Jar image from Bugaboo as my DT submission this week.  I printed it out twice and colored with Copics. The lid and ribbon were cut out from the 2nd image and sculpted from the back.  That portion was layered with foam tape to provide the dimension in paper tole (or sculpting) fashion.  Three layers of DP were layered on the yellow base CS,.ribbon threaded thru the punched slots in the oval sentiment tag and three simple circle punches from one of the DPs were used as faux brads.  White Copic paint was used as high lights on the focal image and the Ladybug's spots were colored with an embossing pen and then embossed with clear EP to provide the shine.
You can see the inspiration of the entire Design Team HERE.

  4. Love the "Bug You Caught" sentiment! It's a great card, love the color combo and interest with the paper placement.

  5. Ohh, I love this card! It really feels like you caught the ladybug. So wonderful made and love the colors you used.

    And thank you for your kind words, it warms my heart. I think the inside of a card is just as important as the outside. Maybe not so much embellishments but a little to make the card complete.
