Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Stamp of the month! - No designer papers!

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! This week it was the lovely Julies turn to set the challenge, she chose the theme of 

No Designer Papers!! 

But the DT also had another twist, Kerry has decided that for this month only Nikki Running with buttercup will be half price!! so this is our first stamp of the month! 




So armed with the stamp, and the challenge of no DP, I set to! I normally panic with challenges like this as I struggle to fill in all the gaps and white bits on my cards! But this one I decided I would really try extra hard, and you know what? I reckon I might have just done it! 

So here is Nikki running with Buttercup ... 


I coloured Nikki in with copics, added some glamour dust to the ground and some fluffy stuff to the falling snow. I double mounted her onto scallop circle nesties, added a couple of MS snowflakes and a couple of flourishes in pearls. this was then all mounted on some white shimmer card onto lilac and turquoise card. I reckon she looks great! and I reckon the colours look perfect together aswell ... infact I liked her so much that I dug out another Nikki stamp and you will see her tomorrow! 

I hope you will join in with out No DP challenge this week, and leave a little ladybug love for the other ladybugs!
