Totally Ladybug Tuesday - A sketch by Michele

Another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! This time we look forward to a fab sketch from the lovely Michele!


So hop on over to the challenge blog and join us for some fun!

Well I started my card quite early ... put papers on the card, added a punched border, chose and coloured my image ... the screwed it all up by being daft and silly and trying to be clever ... Anyway my original card I used Kerrys Fluffy stuff tutorial which for anyone who wants to give it a try you can find here.

Then I started again ... and created this ... 



I chose Daydreaming Ruby, which might I add is my bestest and most favourite LCI stamp in the world!!! ... and the sentiments are also from LCI and can be found here. I coloured her in copics and glamour dusted her wings, I mounted her on a doily which came from the lovely Sarah. I inked up the doily in versamark chalk ink. added a punched border using an EK Success punch, and added some ribbon, which came from ebay!  It did need a little something more, so I added 3 little blue pearls in the bottom corner. Sorry Michelle!

Hop on over and see the rest of the talented Design Teams beautiful makes ... I am sure you will all agree they have done a flabulous job!
