Cute as a Bug!

These are the new vintage "bug" images by Crafty Secrets! They are so adorable! I used an acrylic sheet by Pageframe designs with the polka dots on it. I cut out the window with my coluzzle (no easy task due to the thickness of the acrylic).

Here is a close look at the coloring with the copic markers. I can get into the smallest of spaces with the brush tip. I used the airbrush for the background after I masked off the image.











Here is a shot of the card open. I must have taken over 20 photos to get some shots without glare. It is REALLY cute IRL.

Off to play some more with my bugs....
Happy Stamping!

Oh, my WOW!!! How totally, utterly, adorably COOL! You made me go look and now I see all kinds of new Crafty Secrets stamps I simply MUST have! Oh, shame on you! Right when I was thinking I needed to cut back on my stamp acquisitions. Some of their new sets are too good to resist. Your cards just put me over the edge!

Your ability to get such great shading and the cool 3-d touches, wow! I love the acrylic.

I also love the one with the boy reading. (Been thinking about that card since I saw it!)
