Starting off today with the sketch from MJ:
And the card:
I am still out of skitter bug beads but SO adore my little bugs and really wanted to use them so i came up with another idea. I stamped them on and then put a flat drop of dimensional pearls down for the bodies. once dry i drew the black details on with my sakura pen. TA DA!! still prefer the skittles but until the new shipment arrives........
Here's a close up so you can see their shimmering little bodies!!!
The next card up is for Julee's mojo monday sketch:
And the card:
For the circle panel I stamped butterflies a flutter in versamark and then clear embossed with rangers detail embossing powder. next was a little experiment - i got some of the tsukineko walnut ink sprays (not up in the store yet as i try to decide if i should carry them - if you DO want them be sure and make your voice heard). i have them in the traditional brownish walnut color as well as a distress looking pink, blue and purple. for the card above i sprayed first with the pink and then a bit with the brown. i DO love the look but am not sure what makes them different than what i can do in my mini mister KWIM??? the square panel is a scrap from the SEI Chocolat line - SO yummy AND they are having a great sale 25% off right now on alot of stuff so run on over there!!!
