It's Not All Black and White

I Tried It.

Jen's Sketch For You To try, that is. And here's the result:

I already has this little ladybug stamped and cut out from a previously failed card, so I made use of her here. I just love when half the work is already done for me like that. I actually rolled the ladybug around a small paintbrush handle so that the wings would stand up a bit. Then I glued the center line of her body down and adhered the wings with dimensionals. Both the ladybug body and all of the flowers were pressed into pumpkin ink, then rolled in red ink, then stamped on the paper. For the sentiment tab, I sponged the edges with red as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and here's wishing for a speedy spring arrival!

What's In It?
Stamps: Little Lady, Butterfly Kisses (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Going gray, basic black, pumpkin pie, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Pumpkin pie, ruby red (SU!); noir black (Palette)
Other: anywhere hole punch, tab punch (SU!); scallop and oval punches (Marvy); white gel pen (Signo); brads (Lasting Impressions); ribbon (Offray); dimensionals; sponge

C-U-T-E! LOE IT! I love that you had the patience to cut out those antenna, and that you rock-and-rolled all of those flowers and the bug! Gotta get that tab punch AND some nestabilities, now that I (just this weekend - shh) finally bought a Cuttlebug.
