How cute are these bugs? I just love the Alota Rubberstamp Bees! And I love that they are making lunch! This is actually called Mary Ann and Ian building Aussi and it a fun image to color. I used my Copics, white gel pen, stickles and the Diamond Glaze for all of the glass items, the bottles, the relish jar and the plate.

Now because this is a large image there really isn't room for a lot of embellishments, so I cut it out leaving a border around the art, then matted on brown kraft paper. I then cut out the mat around the art as well.
I used the sketch from Friday's Sketchers Blog Challenge as it seemed to be perfect this week for such a large image. I found in my scraps a piece of Daisy D's tablecloth pattern paper, how perfect is it! I matted with a dark red, then the again with the kraft paper. I used brown satin cording for the top, attaching on the back with glue dots. Then mounted it on a green card stock base. I also doodled around the edge. I know I do on every card lately, but it just didn't feel finished.
Now I needed a sentiment. I went through everything I had, then found this stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps. Seemed to fit well don't you think?
So it is Monday again, and we are finally expecting some decent rain here. We really have had a dry summer so we are looking forward to it. Although it is creating a sinus pressure headache that is killing me this morning! Worth it for some green grass for the donkeys. Hope you have a great day and have some crafting time!
