Catch The Bug challenge blog. This cute turtle is one of the first free digital images I collected from the Bug A Boo stamps online store.
I've been practicing my coloring with Copic markers, the colors I used are: B23, E21, E25, C2, BV00, BV08, Y13, Y15, Y19, YG01, YG03, YG05 & YG17. I'm working on doing more with my background scenes so I used the C2 marker and chisel tip of the blender pen to make another cobble stone path. One day I'll get brave and make some grass and flowers, maybe... The card stock colors are Papertrey Ink True Black, Summer Sunrise, Via Vellum Leaf Green, Stampin' Up! Lovely Lilac & Neenah Solar White. I applied SU Crystal Effects to the rain drop and puddle for some shine, used two different Cuttlebug embossing folders for more nice texture and a long neglected Quickutz flower die with half pearls added to the centers. The stamped "Spring Greetings" is from the Papertrey Ink Take Three Spring stamp set.
My card today also qualifies for Creative Card Crew's Challenge #49 April Showers Bring May Flowers.
Spring and April showers are kind of difficult for me to wrap my mind around living in Arizona, the high temperature today is supposed to be 96 degrees. I suppose that's spring in Arizona! I hope you're having a fabulous day where ever you are.
