This started out as an idea for a monochrome card but in the end I couldn't resist adding a bit of colour to the ladybird. The bugs were stamped using pigment ink and heat embossed so they are shiny. I then die cut them which requires some care to make sure the die is lined up correctly and I had to have more than one attempt at that. They were then adhered to a piece of white card which had been stamped using a dictionary page stamp and this was in turn added to a script background and a circle of grey patterned paper from a pad I've had in my stash forever. I'm still on a mission to make a few more masculine cards although this could be sent to anyone unless you knew they hated 'bugs'.
