A bunch of Ladybugs

The challenge at the Elzybells blog is to alter an image. And since I don't own so many Elzybells stamps (too bad fo me!) I decided to make a bunch of ladybugs:


Ready Steady Stamp #5

For this card I followed the sketch for the delicious diva challenge but I just found out they stop that challenge. Too bad because I liked it a lot.
I used the ingrediƫnts for the ready steady stamp challenge #5: Flowers & butterflies/Greet/Buttons/Lace/Pva resist technique. The resist technique I used for the butterflies and the flowers are on the background.

3 challenges in one

For this card I followed the Midnight Madness sketch #16, used the colors for the Delicious Diva challenge: Barely Banana, Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Pumpkin pie, and I used an animal stamp for the Stamp Something challenge:

Elzybells Challenge

I made this card for the Elzybells challenge #26: Make your own self stamped patterned paper. So I stamp a few bunches of flowers on the background. On the inside of the card I stamped a border of very cute ladybugs.

It's hard to see, but I let some of the ladybugs pop of the paper.
