Celebrations Challenge

Jen's Digi Stamps

Happy New Year everyone!  Today I am posting as a Design Team member for Jen's Digi Stamps.  We are doing a challenge using the Celebrations Digis.  I chose the Martini Bug digi, the lil Bugger is a cutie:)

This is a 5x5 card.  I used assorted papers from my scrap pile, I have a huge pile I need to whittle I used a tag cut from Art Philosophy cartridge and Inked it up with Tim Holtz  Spiced marmalade.  then stamped with it  using a stamp from Michaels' and My Crafty Spot Tiny Tags2.

I used a ribbon from Michaels and a felt flower.

this is how I stamped the inside

here is a close up of the lil bug..I used Stickles on his wings, after all  a Bug's gotta dress up for new years!!  I used my Promarkers and some of the yellow shade markers from Spectrum Noir. I am new at the shading thing.  I still need a LOT of practice, but having fun doing it.

You really should go over to Jen's Digi Stamps store and browse around, her digis are fun and cute I love them....Go On..what are you waiting for?????? Oh yeah a link..Duh :)  here it is.  Also had over to the blog and get in on the challenge!!
