Cute as a bug on a rug

Hello Everyone,

Back to share another gorgeous image from scrapbook stamp society by artist Heather Valentin...






This little pet is called "cute as a ladybug" and can be purchased from Scrapbook stamp society  ..just scroll down to promoted products.

No designer papers...no papers at all, just red and black card stock...coloured with Faber Castell pencils, added glitter and beautiful silver hearts...gems on the end of her feelers and gave her Elizabeth Taylor eyes...violet....used my cuttlebug and dies for the corners...and that is it really.
Beautiful to colour...although with pencils the red took forever  ..

Thanks for stopping by and all the lovely comments you leave...hopefully will be back tomorrow....I have 4 after school kids at the moment...I barely finish work and of to school for collection,and things are not getting done here....I found 3 cockroaches in my bedromm...aaarrgghh...they could have crawled on me in the night...but they were very dozy...the spray must be working...dirty little devils..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy! This card is beautiful! I love the pretty glitter flower, wings and lady bug. Then the bling along with the pretty silver hearts you added makes the perfect finishing touch.
I'm not sure if you know, but I run a preschool/childcare program for ten children out of my home. Ages newborn to 5 years old. The days are really long here. I am always looking forward to being able to play in my craft room!
You poor dear........I hope that the cockroaches croak sooner than later!
Warmest Hugs, Sheryl

Love those big eyeballs! That flower just shimmers away and I really like how you partially colored it...that looks really neat. Great idea for her antenna to use gems; will be borrowing that idea. ;)

Hope your day was great!
hugs to you,
Lisa xx

p.s. Thank you for the comment on my Valentine card. Had to yank it as it ran on the wrong day. Love how I mess that up.
