Birthday Bug

Time for a Make-it-Monday challenge! Today’s challenge was to use Copic markers to add shading to colored cardstock (mim7). Flowers would be my first choice, but since I’ve done that (my posy) I wanted to try something else. I thought this bug would be a great stamp for the technique.

In addition, I used a Sweet Sunday Sketch (sss109) for my layout.

I’m not sure I did all that good with the technique, but I think the card is cute enough. For the headlights and bumper I used a white pencil to lighten those areas.

Happy Birthday
