Bug A Boo Stamps Lily Ladybug New Release


I have a fun new release image from Bug A Boo Stamps to share with you today - her name is Lily Ladybug!  I really like ladybugs so I just had to color her and make a card.  

I tried a few new to me techniques on my card too.  The first one was grounding my image and making grass, very fun!  The second one was making a cloudy sky, I had more clouds before I cut my image out!  Note to self - cut your image out first...  The other technique I tried was coloring wood.  I think I'll be practicing all three new techniques, I like them but they need work.

Lily is colored with Copic markers N3, N5, BG000, YG67, YG63, YG61, BV0000, BV000, E53, E99, E29, E25, YG11, BG0000, Co.  My layout started with a sketch but doesn't look much like it now.  The cute sentiment is from Create With TLC and the digital paper is from Jak Heath's blog.  I printed the little black polka dots on Via Vellum Scarlet cardstock.  I added Stickles Ice to her wings and let it dry then added Glossy Accents to seal the glitter in.  Oh, almost forgot the Spellbinders dies, rectangles & scalloped rectangles.  

I hope you'll stop by our Catch The Bug challenge blog to see all the fabulous creations using Lily from our design team!
