Have you heard, Enfys had a big party on her blog last week. Lots of fun things to do and prizes, too. It's not too late to join in ... just click on the link at the top of my sidebar.
On day one, Enfys challenged us to Go Buggy and create a card with a bug on it. This is what I came up with. For my card, I chose one of my all-time favorite cuts from the Wild Card cartridge. I cut four of the petal layers and four of the leaves, inked the edges with Distress Ink and curled the petals. I attached all the layers using clear Zot Dots to add some dimension. For the center of my flower, I cut a circle from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge, embossed it with my Cuttlebug and then inked it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.
Now, for my bugs, I chose the Ladybug cut from the 'Just Because' Cards cartridge. I inked the bodies with a bit of shimmer paint and embossed the wings with UTEE. I think that makes them look at a little more realistic and not so flat. I also added some self-adhesive pearls to the Ladybugs and the card base.
Here's a side view to show the dimension of the layers ...
and a peek at the inside. The sentiment is a stamp from My Pink Stamper's Fruit & Veggie Puns set and all the papers are from Stampin' Up. I had a lot of fun "Going Buggy" at Enfys' blog party ... hope you do, too!
