Spotted you!


Gone Buggy is theme at Craft Your Passion this week.We have the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I’ve used the adorable Lady Bug – butterfly from Bugaboo Stamps.I coloured with Polychromos and blended out with low odour oils thinners using paper stumps.As you can probably make out I’ve applied 3D Crystal Lacquer on the wing case,nose,eyes and antennae.I decided to go with monochrome papers and I wanted to leave some white space in the background.I added some red faux suede strips and pearls accents.I hand cut  a banner with the sentiment on and tucked one end under the die cut flower.I shaped it and lifted that part with some foam tape.
