So it's mid-day now. Day TWO of my jolly berries, and this cutie wraps up my last post for today. Have I saved the best til last? YKW.. I'm not sure. I totally love this girl and her hedgehog friend, but in all honestly.. as much as I am PETRIFIED of bees and all things bee.. I gotta say that BEE YOU FAIRY is my fave. For today at least. Until I make her into a card.. then I might change my mind! LOL.
Okay.. so this little lady and her spiky friend is..
BUGS AND KISSES
So this card is pretty CAS for me, I know. Don't die. I guess I can do it if I really put my mind to it.. although this is about as plain as I think I could manage. I wanted to keep it pretty flat as I'm gonna be posting it out to a lady who was very, very kind to me in a recent SMASH* swap. She loves ladybugs, perfect. Black and red, perfect.. aaand that sentiment from Amy R goes perfectly with this little couple! PERFECT!
I've used some scraps of paper from My Minds Eye.. Lost and Found 2 Rosy, perhaps? That 6x6 pad is nearly GONE! Yeah peoples, you read right. Within the space of about a week, I've said that TWICE. ;) That massive patterned paper stash is slowly diminishing. I promise.
These two cuties have been coloured using my go to medium.. ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. Okay.. be honest.. does Mr.Hedgehog look like he's got chickenpox?! That's what my boyfriend said about the little spots on his face. I thought it was cute! :( I've added a ton of layers to his spikes, but it doesn't really show in the picture.
I'd love to enter this card into these challenges:
- Craft Your Passion - Gone Buggy
- Make it Monday - Anything Goes
- Simon Says Stamp and Show - Favourite Technique
I love using a flicking technique with my alcohol markers to create strands of grass, which usually complete a summer scene just nicely! :)
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday, I hope I've inspired you guys to stop by the Tiddly Inks BLOG and SHOP to pick up this cutie after drooling over some inspiration from the amazing DT!
