Bug A Boo Stamps Ladybug Scene

It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday once again at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug challenge blog!  The image I used for my card today was a freebie last Friday, maybe we should re name Oldie But Goodie Thursday to I can't keep up Thursday!  

Lets face it, I'd like to color almost every image that comes my way but don't have time so I have a pile of printed images that I want to color and hope to get to before something else catches my eye.  Do you have that problem too?  I've tried to stop buying images unless I'm going to color them right away, maybe we should just start a 12 step program for ourselves.  

I had so much fun coloring Jodie's Ladybug scene with Copic markers.  I wanted to be a little nontraditional and also use some different Copic marker colors again. I pulled out my trusty Stampin'Up! color wheel to choose a color palette.

I also thought purple ladybugs would be fun.  My Stampin' Up! color choices are Orchid Opulence, More Mustard, Mellow Moss, Mint Melody & Bliss Blue.  My cardstock choices were Mellow Moss & Orchid Opulence but since I didn't have those I used Sorbet Grape and The Paper Mill Deep Pine because they were close.

I used Copic markers V17, V15, V12, Y26, Y23, Y21, YR14, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, B21, B23, BG10, BG11, BG13, E43, E44, E42, T5, T3 my layout is very simple to showcase Jodie's fabulous image, "Mom" is a digi from a Clear Dollar Stamps set punched out and matted using Stampin' Up! oval punches.  I also found the cutest sentiment for the inside about ladybugs at Create With TLC.

I hope you'll stop by our Catch The Bug challenge blog and check out what all our fabulous design team has for you this Oldie But Goodie Thursday!
