Bugs and kisses

Hi crafters. This card started with a piece of watercolour paper onto which I stencilled leftover texture paste in pink and purple with the Funky Fossil micro dots stencil. I thought I could use it in the Simon says Stamp All things pink challenge. I added a wash of pink watercolour. I found some secondhand embroidered bugs the other day and this one had the same pinks in it. I made a border around the watercoloured panel with teal and metallic threads to match the bug. I cut some platinum vellum with Kaisercraft leaf dies and coloured these roughly with an alcohol marker. I added the panel onto a teal cardbase with pink fun foam underneath. I glued the bug onto the leaves and added a couple of gem eyes and clear droplets. The sentiment is a Dymo label.

I am entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: All things pink.

Happy crafting

Christine
