I'm A Guest Ladybug

It's Tuesday and time for my first guest spot at Totally Ladybug Tuesday, yay!!!!  It's Pami's choice this week and it's a Male theme. Not too difficult what with Father's Day just around the corner.  I however made a birthday card using the cutest little chap ever,meet Hide and seek Jack! I have to tell you,I had so much fun colouring up this lovely image,especially the tree trunk,it just lends itself to getting so much dimension,I couldn't begin to tell you what colours I used but by the end of my colouring session I'd got most of my 80+ Copic collection strewn over the table!  I tried to show it through lots of photos but in the end gave up but I decoupaged Jack and the owl so they really stand out from the tree. The gorgeous papers are by My Mind's Eye "Out of the blue,Lime Twist 6x6 paperpack. I did lots of layering and added stickles around the edges and also added some Glossy accents to the Ladybug. Both Jack and the sentiments are by Ladybug Crafts Ink


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CI Paints, Male,
Dream Valley 8, Stamp something,
Catch The Bug June, Anything goes,
CYDA21, Special man,
Wee Memories 59, Anything goes,
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my 4 weeks as a Lady bug!
Happy crafting,
Julie.x
