I guess you could say that I "got bugged' today.......

Actually, today’s Limited Supplies Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers was entitled “Go Ahead and Bug Me” and we had to make a card with any kind of a bug on it, with no more than four layers and NO patterned papers! Well, I just happened to remember this really cool bug that I had used on a digital scrapbook page that I designed four years ago, so I located the image on my Hemera Big Box of Art CD collection and tuned it into a “digital stamp” so that I could color him with my Prismas and some Goo Gone… you can see the scrapbook page and the darling little bug!

I also decided that since I could not use pattered paper, I would create my own background using ink pads and a cloud stencil. I designed the “picket fence” using my Pazzles “Inspiration Studio” software and then cut it out using my Pazzles “Inspiration Creative Cutter”. The “Always take time out to smell the flowers” was done using the "FreehandBT 591" font and Photoshop CS3 and then printed on my Canon Pixma MP530 All-in-One inkjet printer. In addition to using Prisma Watercolor pencils, I added the shadowing using watercolor and an aqua brush. I placed a clear Dew Drop over his eye instead of using a googly eye! I also used some iridescent paper to make an extra layer of the wings that I covered with “Crystal” Stickles.

If you would like to participate in this challenge, you can find all the information here! Trust me you will have a lot of fun with it and I usually learn something new from doing their challenges!

Pam that is just too cute. I really like the paper you used for the fence - looks like real wood. Love the dew drop on his eye too!
