A bugs life...

Over at Lexis Creations, there's a new challenge

It's a bugs life

Our sponsor is Letraset

The amount of bugs that landed on me yesterday at the local wildlife park I should have just taken a photo of myself as my DT creation lol. Instead I made a card with a acetate front which is a first for me. My hubby (without been asked) said he really liked this card, so that made my day :-)

I've used some digi bug images designed by Lexi that you can find at Fairy dust crafts and Stitchy bear stamps. They are Baby Bee, Baby dragonfly, Baby ladybug and Baby flying ant, all of these have been coloured in with Promarkers

Sorry for the reflections on the acetate, i took so many photos and every one of them had a shadow across the head on shot.

Here's a close up of the flying bugs. I made a sun to go in the corner, added some ink to the edge and a bit of glitter.

I used a Marraine Creatable die to make the flower, the sentiment is made by Forever friends. The mushrooms are stickers that I found in my stash.

I cut the grass myself, but the fence is a MS die. I've added some cute little buttons of bugs. I have a slight accident with them though!! As I wanted them to lie flat, I have cut the back off, lets just say my finger got in the way. No lasting damage though and I managed to make them lie flat in the end.

You can check out the other DT 'bug' creations here.
