Ladybug bear

Good Evening my crafty friends!

Today I've got another DT project for Crafting Desert Diva's Digi design team.  Did I mention how much fun I am having??  I'm so thankful to Tara for giving me a chance!

Here's my card for today.

Isn't she super adorable???  I wanted to try a different coloring medium this time so I got out my Polychromos pencils.  I'm still learning proper tecniques and her head was a lot of space to cover! The blending is the hardest I think but I'm getting there.  After I finished coloring, I fussy cut her out. Along with two of the little flowers and the other ladybug.  Also colored with Polychromos.  I adhered her to the background with foam tape so she would stand out.  One of the flowers I glued on her dress and the other I tucked under.  I also scattered a few of the yellow sequins from the Citrus Bliss sequins.  

Now for the background I wanted something nice and bright.  So I reached for my Zig Clean color markers and made a simple plaid pattern.  I did my best to match the colors I used on the bear.  Pretty darn close!  The background is cut out with the largest die from Fancy Frames.  Of course I also wanted a turquoise layer that matched everything else so I used the same Zigs to color the edges of white cardstock.  Ta Da!  This layer was hand cut and all were adhered to the white card base.

Once again I used my computer to print my own sentiment.  I used the largest 3D flag banner die.  I wanted it to have a little something extra.  I got my Copics out and used some of the very pale blues to give it a bit more dimension.  I then cut some teeny tiny pieces of foam tape and adhered the ladybug to the banner.  Whew!  I love how she turned out!!

As always, thank you for stopping by!
