CCEE1732 Insects



Anne is our fabulous hostess this week and her challenge for us at CCEE Stampers was to use an insect. So it might be a bee, a dragonfly, or any insect you would like. She also suggested using a little stickles or sparkle to the wings if it is a winged insect. I went through my bug stamp collection
and found this  old favorite of mine from Stampin' Up. It was a from a free set that I got during their Sellabration event years ago. I love the artwork on it and so I wanted a softer look for my coloring and a simple background so I went for a one layered card.  I watercolored with oxide inks and embossed the edges.
