Birthday Bugs

Hi everyone.  This is my Design Team card for the latest Addicted to Stamps & More challenge - Theme #5 (Nature).

Prize:  7 digital images 
 (please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Stamps:  SceneIt - Ladybugs (Bugaboo); Happiest Birthday Wishes (SU!)
Paper:  White (Neenah)
Ink:  Basic Black (SU!); Copics:  Y21, Y32, YR24, V09, V25, R27, R29, E44, E49, E77, G85, G99, YG95, YG99, 0 (colorless blender)
Accessories & Tools:  Crystal Effects, white gel pen, and dimensionals

I used an adorable image from this week's sponsor - Bugaboo.  I colored it with copics and added a little Crystal Effects to the ladybugs for shine and dimension.  I'm getting more comfortable with using my Copics, but still have a long way to go ... and of course, I need to get more colors - I see shopping in my future! :)

Here's a close-up so you can see the Crystal Effects - just love the shine it adds to the ladybugs!:

I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!


  1. What a fun, happy card, Loll!

  2. Such a great image and a fun card Loll beautifully coloured...


  3. That's as cute as a bug, Lolly! (I couldn't resist! But it really is cute as a bug!)

  4. This is super cute! I really like it that you've put the card with image directly on card base without framing -I want to try this in my future CAS exercises. :) Coloring looks good also!

  5. Love this image Loll and it's been beautifully coloured. The crystal effects really make the ladybirds pop out of the image.
