A Buggy Challenge!

Happy Friday Everyone! If it is Friday, then it is time for another Blogger's Challenge! This week's challenge was to use bugs in your creation. Apparently, I don't have a lot of buggy stamps...lol! I just used my butterflies last week and a few weeks before that it was the new little bees from Stampendous. I wanted to share something that I hadn't used for a challenge before, so I found my Bee Happy Topper from Stampendous and got right to work!

The image is stamped with Black Stazon and then colored with my new Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colour Pencils. I really like working with them. Gina Krupsky of Gina K. Designs has a wonderful tutorial on how to use these pencils. You can find it here. I actually used my Stampin' Up Blender Pen because I've never tried working with odorless mineral spirits and stumps, but I'm hoping to give that a whirl this weekend! I'll let you all know how it works out. Now back to the card details...lol! The card base is made from a piece of Stampin' Up Cranberry Crisp and then a layer of Certainly Celery. I then added some Chatterbox Summer Bias Plaid and used the flip side for the flowers. The accents include some Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain ribbon, a little bit of faux stitching, and a little clump of buttons to complete this card.

For more buggy creations, just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo on the right of my blog. Have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
