Catch the Bug...Oldie But Goodie


Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug; I'm going with Margaret because she makes me laugh. Plus, I think we have all felt this way at one time or another!

I've colored the image with pencils and did some simple layering: I didn't want to cover up this fun patterned paper...it is perfect for this image! I've embellished simply with a banner and heart. Here's a close-up:

St. Patrick's Day...With a Pop of Pink



Good morning! It's Freebie Friday at Catch the Bug...today's freebie is the lovely Stella! I must say she looks a bit salty; pretty sure I wouldn't try to pinch her!

I've colored Stella with pencils and accented the shamrocks with glitter. I added some enamel dots for embellishing and then decided they were a "no". Note to self: Do not push so hard, because once they are stuck, they are stuck! So, enamel dots it is! Here's a close-up:

Catch the Bug: Oldie But Goodie



Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug and in honor of the snow (and ice!) we've been having, I decided to make a snowman card. This image was released last month, so I am hoping that qualifies as an "oldie"...it was so cute I couldn't resist!

The image is colored with pencils and and accented with glitter. I've used a past Freshly Made Sketches sketch, which I flipped. I embellished with some die cuts and a bit more glitter on the snowflakes. Here's a close-up:

Catch the Bug: Anything But a Card



Good morning: it's ABC Monday at Catch the Bug! Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I whipped up a tag using this adorable pup...I couldn't resist the hearts on the string! They were fun to color and "glitter up"; I confess, the glitter is always my favorite step! LOL I trimmed the image, mounted it on a tag, added twine, and tied it to the jar with ribbon. I added some Hershey's Kisses...I can't resist them!

Bugaboo Birthday Bash: Color Challenge + Sprinkles



Good morning! It's Day 7 of Bugaboo's Birthday Bash. Not only is it Freebie Friday, we have a Color Challenge for you, plus we would like to see Sprinkles! (Because who doesn't like sprinkles?) Here is the color palette:


I have to say that I love the color palette, but I thought it would be fun to go with an all white card and incorporate the colors into the image only. The adorable chick is colored with pencils and I've added a generous "sprinkling" of glitter to her eyelids, feathers, and balloon. For a bit of texture I've used textured vellum for layering, along with grosgrain ribbon.

Here's a close-up:
