Bugs Alive

I make no real excuses about using this image twice in one week. It was the ideal choice when the girls over at CMLI on the craft Bubble forum laid down the sketch with a bugs twist.

The image is from the Sweet Pea range. Coloured with promarkers with touches of glossy accents and stickles. The leaves were added to by layering the image onto an extra set stamped.
The background was created using my new tool - a brayer with some foliage stamping on. The scalloped edging is an edge punch "bent round" because I don't own any "nestie" type cutters with an added pearl detail.
The BP was in a RAK and I don't know the origin. This was layered onto a wavy cut plain paper before attaching to the card base.
The lace at the top was an old length in stash that I coloured dark green with alcohol ink. The added pink being the offcuts from punching the image's backing. Again adding some pearl detail. The bugs at the bottom are die cuts from holographic card and those at the top are brads.

Challenges that I am entering this into are
In A SweetPea Dream - Pink
SweetPea Stampers - Scallops
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Pearls
Totally Gorguss - Lace and pearls
