Bug Hugz


Good morning! Happy Wednesday! I have another ATS Challenge to share with you. Christine challenged us to use three different ribbons on our projects. Not a problem for me! ;) I've been combining ribbons a lot lately -- it's a simple way to add some punch to your projects. The Infuse paper dictated my ribbon choices -- my three favorite colors, too! I've been asked how I create the bows with different ribbons. I cut the strips of additional ribbon, then I slide them through the knot of the main ribbon just before I pull it tight. It takes some finger gymnastics sometimes, but these SU! grosgrains are easy to work with!

For the rest of the card, I stamped the Luv Bugz in Basic Brown and colored them with an Aquapainter and inks. I colored the girl bug's flower with a Regal Rose marker. I sponged the edges of the circles with Chocolate Chip and added dots to the scallops with an Old Olive marker. I created the bottom scallops with a corner rounder. I stamped the sentiment onto the patterned paper in Chocolate Chip ink and placed a Dew Drop on either side. The scalloped circle is mounted on Pop Dots.

We'd love for you to play along with the challenge! If you do, link back here or post it to the ATS Gallery. Christine will be posting the Design Team samples on the ATS Blog later on today, and you can link your creation there as well.

That's all for today! I appreciate you stopping by! Have a fantastic day today! :)
