Bug for a 'bugging lady'


I am here but not for long.
I am still struggling with my thesis and it is not a good struggle.
I have a card that I made in between my fight with this academic travesty ;)
Its a card for a friend who bugged me to death for a creative card ..and I decided to make a buggetty-bug card :)


The digital image is from 'a day for daisies' and I coloured the image with Shinhan touch markers as always and put loads of glitter on her wings and dress. The white dots on her cheek add a whimsical touch. I am still colouring with markers on ordinary card stock and it seems to work just OK (I am not too happy about it and right now I don't have the time to order a thick card stock that allows smooth blending). I used a floral tape covered wire to make the ladybug's antennas. :P 


Its an acetate card and just note that making this card gave me so much happiness and solace. I drew, cut and coloured each one of these roses and leaves and the birdhouse was also made from scratch. 


The card stock is a beautiful marigold yellow. Every hand drawn piece is given dimension with a double sided foam tape


The complete card with acetate. The lady bug is on the acetate and the rest is on the card stock in a manner that if you lift the acetate the white dotted lines continue to form words behind the ladybug 'take flight'. 


I also made a coordinating envelope with the same card stock because I wanted the envelope to be stiff and thick to provide the much needed protection to this dainty card. 
A bit of embellishments here and there ..and voila !


Hope you like it :)
Love
