Cards in Envy Challenge – Bug Me!

For this Cards in Envy Challenge, we are bugging out with a “Bug Me” theme.  Choose any insect or bug on your card to enter.  Our challenge runs through Sunday, August 20th and the design team will be picking their favorites. As a quick reminder, Cards in Envy asks that you make your card fit into a standard A2 card, which is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

My card today features an old Close to My Heart stamp set called “Beetle Bug”.  I stamped him using tombow (443 & 173) markers on watercolor paper.  Once the image was stamped, I went back with an aqua brush and dropped it additional color.  I then highlighted the bug with a Fabercastell pen and added back ground with Daniel Smith watercolors in Hematite. Last, I stamped a club scrap foliage stamp and cut out the design using a My Favorite Things stitched flag die. My paper pad is “We Are Family” by Echo Park and the sentiment Lawn Fawn “On the Mend”.

I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us your “Bug Me” cards.
