Good Morning and Happy Hopping!!!
Today is the official opening of Deedee's Digi Store. And, we are having a Blog Hop so you can see artwork with some of her fantastic Digi Stamps.
Use the line-up of DT at the top of my sidebar for hopping ease.
My card today was inspired by a sketch from Caardvarks. They have two fabulous sketches this week so I really have to make time to work with the other one too.
My card features a new digi stamp from Deedee's digi's called Lady Bug Hugs. Isn't this just the cutest.
I hope my card looks better on your monitor then it does on mine. You really can tell they are lady bugs in person. It's hard to see that in the scan. The images were printed three times, colored with copic markers, cut out and mounted with foam tape for a 3D look.
The center of the flowers has flower soft for added dimension.
The top border was punched with a MS punch then cuttlebugged. The bottom was punched with a MS fence punch. I chose to put the bottom border on top of the image rather then behind as in the sketch.
The designer papers, liquid glass, and the ribbon are from Close to my Heart. The liquid glass was added to all the lady bugs for dimension and make them look shiny.
The hand stitching around the card was done with matching embroidery floss.
