Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!
Here is a card I created for my sweet Avery! She is going to be a ladybug for Halloween (I will be sure to post pics...she is going to look SO cute!), and I wanted her first Halloween card to be personalized!
Now...PLEASE don't go looking for a ladybug stamp over @ MFT!! I used the Pure Innocence Honey Bee set for my card, but did a bit of altering!! I have seen this done with images from The Greeting Farm, so I thought I would see if I could take this cutie and give her a ladybug costume instead of a bumble bee costume!!
I started by inking her up in Memento Tuxedo Black and before stamping her onto X Press It Blending Card, I, VERY carefully wiped the ink off from the stripes on her costume. I then stamped her and used a Copic Multiliner to draw in the circles for the ladybug dots and to also fix the lines of the image that I screwed up when removing ink (the Copic Multiliner is a MUST have in my opinion!).
Once I had her the way I wanted her, I colored her with Copic Markers. I added some shimmer to her wings with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen, and added an "A" to her Halloween basket using the Banner Day Alphabet, also from MFT!
I kept the layout SUPER simple, as I really wanted the focus to be on my image. I cut out and embossed the focal panel with Oval Nestabilities which I layered onto Scallop Oval Nestabilities. I then layered the entire focal panel over three layers of cardstock cut with Rectangle Nestabilities. I attached four of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles in red for a bit of pop.
The patterned paper is from Happy Halloween by Echo Park Papers, and I used the sentiment,
"Sweet Treats" from Pure Innocence Honey Bee, which I punched out using my Word Window Punch. I also added some red embroidery thread for a bit of embellishment.
Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
