Good Morning everyone.
Today im sharing a fun childrens birthday card using ladybirds or to my followers elsewhere in the world ladybugs. I think its actually suitable for adults too.
DL cardbase. This card using alot of scraps and snippets. The squares, ladybirds and sentiment were all cut from little pieces of card inked with brushos, pixies powders and oxide inks. The flowers left over bits of white card.
I first cut a panel of white card slightly smaller than the cardfront, i embossed this with a brick wall embossing folder and lightly brushed oxide inks in tumbled glass & pistachio over the top. I added this panel to the card front.
I didnt have enough of one colour of inked card for 3 squares, so the 2 outside ones are from brusho/pixie powder card and the middle one is oxide inks. The ladybirds were cut from black card and red brusho card and layered up. The sentiment is cut from the same red brusho card. I gently shaped my white flowers and added to the circles and then my 3 ladybirds added one top.
Close up on the ladybirds. We don't get an awful lot of them here in this part of Cornwall due to the damp atmosphere so its always a little exciting to see the odd one or two in the garden.
