Buggy Flower

Hello Everybody!

It is that time again to welcome in a new challenge at PINspirational! I am adding not one but two cards for inspiration. Here they are, enjoy!

The sentiment was done by blocking out the double L in Hello and inserting
the cutest little ladybug using its two legs for the letters.

Cute Critters Stamp Set used
You can see by the stamp set I used I created this cute little bug
scene using digital editing software. 
After I was done layout the scene I simply printed it out
and colored it with PrismaColor pencils.


The digital stamp was printed on the back of this watercolor.
I used my old fashioned stylus and foam to emboss the image on the other side of the paper.
I wet the paper using my aqua-brush and added color using a conventional brush.

Art Deco Flower digital stamp used
This was done as an experiment. I had this technique rattling in my head
for awhile and thought this would be the perfect image to try it out.

Photo inspiration

That should do it for me! I do hope you can play along at PINspirational. I am sure to see some awesome creations. Take care everyone and have a great day!

All the best,
