Bugs again today!!! I just can't help it I am having so much fun with the new Alota Rubber Stamps releases this month! And today's is probably my favorite -Chocolate Dipped Bugs!! Ok.. so I don't plan to eat these bugs, but common how funny is that middle ones face?

I have started doing something a bit different with my coloring - my background is chalk - I do that first, reason being is then when I go and start coloring with my Copics, any of the chalk that has gone into the image is just colored away - I love how the background is soft, and hey it beats coloring the background with my Copics and trying to make it look even. After doing my Copic coloring I used Shimmerz to layer over my candy cups and then dimensional glaze for the yummy chocolate... looks really cool in person.
My card started with s chocolate colored Core'dinations card stock then a background of Bazzil Dotted Swiss, the pattern papers are DCWV Sweets paper stack - had to use them! The border is a Fiskar's border/embossed punch. I sewed everything down with a bright pink thread with both zig zag and straight stitches. Ran a piece of wide dark pink satin ribbon across the bottom as a back ground for my label .. yes that is a long piece of tape from my Label maker. The one large button for the top of the image. I just love this one, this image just makes me smile!
Gotta get outside.. I am back on donkey lock down... Yes Vicki is getting really close! (we think LOL)
Have a great Thursday!
HUGS and-
