I'm "Going Buggy" with Whimsical Wednesday Challenges
It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another challenge over at Whimsical Designs. This week's theme is "going buggy". Create a card or layout and use an insect or animal on it, then link it up!
Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede and the prize is 5 digis of the winners choice.
QKR Stampede was generous to send each of the design team members a digi image to work with. I chose these charming lady bugs, and decided to make them into a tag.
I used the Whimsical Designs "Whimsical Fun, Volume 1" stamp set. I just love this set! I use it over and over and over again when I'm crafting.
I got a new pad of paper that I used on this tag. The paper is by Prima Marketing. The pad is called, "Yuki for Ruby Violet". The papers are very bright and cheerful -- perfect, I think, for dancing ladybugs on sunflowers! What do you think? I colored the stamped image with Copic markers and added a little baker's twine from my stash. The various shapes were cut out with Spellbinders dies. The garden green ribbon is from Close To My Heart and is held in place with a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
Here' s a close up of the stamped image.
It's a rather philosophical sentiment, but I really like it. It's something I should try to do everyday. This is my last post as a design team member for Whimsical Designs. I have so enjoyed my time on this team. I thank Stephanie for giving me the chance to design for her these last several months. I have treasured every Whimsical moment of it.
