Hello, Crafty Makers!
It is time for another fortnight challenge at
I am not a big fan of insects. I don't care how pretty they may be (butterflies and ladybugs.) I prefer to admire them from a distance.
This card was fairly simple to complete! Both the background and the beetle were colored using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink. I used a black Sharpie™ to create faux black matting around my panel. I added Glossy Accents to create a little more interest, and I was done!
I live in the South, and I have made peace with the fact that bugs are simply one more thread in the crazy fabric of southern living. It does not matter how clean you keep your house or how much you pay your pest control service, southern bugs are the Michael Jordans of the insect world. You can't stop them, you can only hope to contain them.
That said, I cannot explain why I like this beetle image so much. It took much self-control to refrain from purchasing another steampunk beetle image. The second one is full-on steampunk and would have integrated well with some AALL&Create background stamps.
Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to finding out what is Bugging You!
