A Bug's love

A Die for a Sketch Challenge 3


This was started as a bug card, but in the end it ended up a bit different, though with enough imagination you'll find some ladybirds flying around. These are a combination of Penny Black stamps from their Hugs series and are coloured with H2O pencils. I just love these hedgehogs, though I don't use them very often. I have become lazy and are playing with digital images more often. The ladybug paper in the second layer I've found in my decoupage stash. Confession, the first time I've used light blue with black and red, together. The circle diecut is from Nellie Snellen, the sqaure is from Spellbinder and the swirls are from Marianne's design.

Challenges I'm joining this time:
A Die for a Sketch #3 - Sketch
Craft you passion # 123 - Gone Buggy
Penny Black Allsorts August Challenge - Whiskers and or wings ( I belief hedgehogs have whiskers)
Dutch Dare Challenge #178 - Furry Friends
The Little Red Wagon #146 - Animals

Thank you

LOL! I see the bugs Olga! And they are really cute! I like the ribbon - and the corner flourishes look like plants that the ladybugs can land on.
I am so glad you joined the challenge - and hope to see you again next week at Craft Your Passion!

Stampe Diem!

Jou kaartjie is pragtig Olga. Ek is 'n groot Penny Black aanhanger veral die "hedgies" en daarom is jou kaartjie vir my spesiaal. Dit is lekker om nog 'n Suid Afrikaanse "blogger" raak te loop op die Web.
