June Bugs

June Bugs - that is the new challenge for the month of June at the Die Cut Diva's Challenge Blog.
Bugaboo is our generous sponsor again this month and boy, do they ever have a lot of bug images to choose from.  The DCDC team had no problem finding images to showcase for you.  Here is one:

As I was coloring this image, Sketchy Floral Teapot,  I knew I wanted to emphasize the ladybugs so I stamped ladybugs (Stampin'Up) on a strip of white card stock,colored them, lined it with red grosgrain ribbon and used that behind the oval that I had cut with Spellbinders Ovals.  The sentiment is an old stamp that I have stored with my "bug" stamps.  (I'm sorry, I have no idea what company).   The sentiment is cut with Die-namics Circle Stax.
All those vine-like squiggles in the image gave me the idea of adding some wire tendrils.  My collection of wire is so neglected but fun to use it every once in a while.
