Christmas bug


This card was created on 28th November; day 28 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

When I saw this stamp being used by a couple of other crafters, I knew I was going to have to get one for myself to make a Christmas card for my brother — he had a VW beetle for a while and yes, it was purple…


For a change, instead of creating a background with Distress ink blending, I got out my Copic airbrush kit. The bug was coloured with Copic markers, fussy cut out and mounted on the background using some thin foam tape. I added glossy accents to the lights and baubles, and stamped small silver sparkles across the card.
