Bugs and Kisses!!


Before I get into the explanation of this card....I wanted to point you to Sherry's blog Walkin on the Bad Side. She's claimin' to have some Tawdry Treats and all you have to do is leave a comment to be entered in the blog candy drawing!!
Also, Dave at Rubbernecker is hosting another Treasure Hunt Tuesday. Sherry will have the clue on her blog Tues. morning which will tell you where to go on Rubbernecker's site!! You don't want to miss it. You get a free stamp with a purchase. And if you purchase $50 worth of stamps, you get a free image of your choice. So now you have two chances to get free stamps. What a deal!!!

Okay, now to the card. Aren't these bugs just the cutest? I can see that little caterpillar dreaming of turning into a butterfly so he can court that beauty. His eyes look so dreamy!! Now, the butterfly and can images were facing the right when stamped, so I just stamped them on acetate and rubbed the image on Papertrey white card stock to reverse the image. I filled in the areas that didn't transfer well with a black permanent marker. I also masked the can and stamped the caterpillar to look like he's crawling out. I then colored all the images and bg with copics and ink distressed with Ranger Antique Linen and Frayed burlap distress inks. The spots on the butterfly and caterpillar are coated with glitter. I used my one of my favorite tools, the Sakura Quickie Glue Pen to adhere the glitter. The can and butterfly are also coated with perfect pearls to give it a bit of shimmer. The butterfly is raised with scotch dimensional tape as is the sentiment and main panel.

All these images can be found at Rubbernecker!! Go take a look. He's got a huge variety of images, styles, and products!!
