Hello, hello! Just a quick post for now and I'll be back with another later. Got lots of deadlines to meet today! :) This is my entry for the latest ColourQ challenge. I was inspired by the bumble bee bag and stuck to the bug theme using my Paper Smooches lightning bug. Some simple paper piecing and twine antennae and we're done! I really struggled with the sentiment though. I REALLY wanted to emboss it with white EP but as I mentioned here I won't have any more of that for a while! I tried clear embossing over white ink with little success so straight white ink it is for this card! See you all later!
Cardstock: (Basic Black, Basic Grey, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry) Stampin' Up
Stamps: (Lightning bug and sentiment from Giddy Bugs set) Paper Smooches
Ink: (Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine) Tsukineko, (Frost White) ColourBox
Dies: (Nestabilities Peony) Spellbinders
Twine: The Twinery
Super cute! Hope you white embossing powder arrives soon.
Adorable...love the little touch of twine for the antennas!
How cute, Jen! I love how you used the colours. I need to find time to play with those cQc challenges. Hope things aren't as hectic for you! ;)
Cute! It matches the inspirational photo perfectly!
I need to get my hands on some of that Colorbox white... you're the second person I've seen that can use it on dark colours and have it show up perfectly. (None of my THREE different white inks do that.) With that out of the way... I love this card! The cute paper-pieced and twine-antennaed bug and the die cut background are awesome!
Totally adorable card- love the little bug!
Cute card, Jen! Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.
Deadlines are the best thing to help speed up my creativity, not sure if you're the same. I can move bits of paper around for hours!
Anyhoo, another totally adorable card Jen, great take on the inpspiration and that's the cutest bee!
Your white ink is totally fine for this adorable card. Hope your EP arrives soon! Hugs xx
I just love his little antenna and the "halo" of light behind him! And that white is great - I know you are anxiously awaiting new ep, but you have some great white ink to show up so well!
cute cute... love the little antennas.
love this card ... that buzzy bee is just the cutest, love the antennae :)
Totally cute and perfect for this ColorQ challenge. I love how you even matched your bug to the face on that sweet backpack!!
This is awesome! I love the way you even matched the picture! :) TOTALLY ADORABLE cas card & I'm so glad you played colourQ this week! :)
Super cute, Jen! I love that you used the bee in the photo as your inspiration for that sweet little bug. I think the white ink looks fantastic, too! Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ!
White is so tricky - even white EP over versamark just doesn't really do it. It's like white pens, you have to try it all to get a good strong solid white.
I love the idea of using the peony as a mat here - I never would have thought of that instead of a circle, etc. And the sweet polka dot wings, and twine antennae? Awesome :)
Oh, this is so utterly cute!! The paper piecing is fab and the antennae? Too cute!! This card is awesome, girl!
