I am sure you are wondering – What is a bug challenge??
That is this month’s challenge over at Power Poppy. The challenge is to create a card with any sort of a bug on it and so here is my entry.
This card is a showcase of both the things I love doing, coloring and sewing.
The flowers are gerberas from the Kit and Clowder Elements of Nature class. I did them on Kraft paper as I love how pencils pop on Kraft. I cut the image out with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a bright yellow cardbase.
I decided to add a butterfly as my bug, but not as a colored image. The butterfly is an embroidered lace embellishment that I made myself. The wings are a mother-of-pearl organza and the stitching is done with Sulky embroidery thread. I adhered it to the card with Glossy Accents so that it will not go anywhere.
The card is completed with a “hello” sentiment that I cut with my Silhouette machine on black cardstock.
I am also entering this card into The Flower Challenge #9 ‘Anything Goes’ challenge.
