A tired little bugg

I was chatting with my BFF today (shocking I know!!) and for some reason we were both yawning away -DING DING on went the light with which stamp I would use today BedBugg HuggaBugg from Stamping Bella!

I also finally had a chance to use Taylor's cupcake sketch challenge
from last Friday, she always has such great sketches!!

Bedbugg Huggabugg is stamped on Gina K's Pure Luxury cs and coloured with Copics to match the Basic Grey
DS paper "offbeat" - I love this line because of all the vibrant colours and of course all the orange :) I added some shimmer to the image with Niji Pearlescenct watercolour paints on the polka dots and the little wings.

On the Polka Dots I did a trick my great friend in TO (Burlington really) Miche like to do & added Crystal effects. On the little antennas I outlined them with my Atyou Spica pen and used silver Stickles on the dots (sorry they don't really show up in the picture)

The card base is SU's Baja Breeze, then the orange ds paper is mounted on SU's Chocolate chip. The striped DS paper is mounted on SU's Baja Breeze and the bugg is cut with a nestie and mounted on a scallop nestie of SU's Real Red.

To finish off the image I added Stamping Bella dots in Orange crackle; I used microdots that I bought from Stamping Bella and I have to say they are fantastic for those little things - thanks Em!!

Have a great Thursday & thanks for stopping by & looking
