Need a little Hugabug?!

I LOVE the hugabugs from Stamping Bella, and miles (the
dragonfly) has been waiting to be
inked up. I figured in honour of all the new hugabugs I ordered today from Stamping Bella I would use him!

This was a fun card to make thanks to Amy R's great sketch and I combined it with Kritina's colour challenge for this week.

Miles is stamped on Gina K white cs with memento black ink, and colour with Lyra Pencils which I have really enjoyed using the past couple of days. I stamped him 2x on SU's vellum paper with black stazon and cut out the wings then layered them onto the image. I stuck them down at different ranges to try and
get the effect of him flying or at least fluttering about!

The card base is SU's baja breeze; layered with DS Pumpkin Pie (the retired one) and chocolate chip and some Old Olive Ribbon.

I used nesties (of course) to cut out miles and layered him on SU's Old Olive cs. to finish off the image I added some bella dots in orange crackle.

If you haven't been over to Stamping Bella yet you need to stop by they have released a bunch of Valentine stamps, and I told Ryan (the MR in Stamping Bella) that for someone who normally doesn't make Valentine cards I have a lot of Valentine stamps coming!!

Thanks for stoping by & thanks Amy & Krista for the inspiration!
